On Sunday, July 19, 2015, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Community Director Sister Natalie Binversie congratulated Golden Jubilarians Sister Carla Riach, Sister Ellen Packmayer, Sister Marlita Henseler, Sister Martinella Janz and Sister Patricia Sevcik in the name of all of our Sisters with these words.
“We have waited 50 years for this day! So much has happened over all those years. There has been sadness in the death of members of your group, Sister Mary Lochlein (1998), Sister Joyce Rose (2002), Sister Jacqueline Koenig (2006) and others who had been a part of your group. There has also been much joy recognizing where God has taken you and nurtured you in these 50 years.
Your title is, “Wheat of the Field.” There are numerous kinds of wheat and innumerable products that come from wheat. Each of you came 50 years ago in response to God’s call to follow Him. You have developed your individual personalities as Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity in various ways. Your lives have been a kind of sowing time and the harvest is not here yet, except for those members who have gone before you.” To read the entire greeting click here: Breakfast Comments for Golden Jubilee
The Lord bless you, our Sisters! We are proud of all that God continues to do in and through you!
