Tuesday, May 17, 2011: The chapel was filled with Residents, Little Sisters, and friends who came together for a Mass in thanksgiving of the 70th Jubilee of St. Pauline.
Standing next to her sister, Sr. Marie Pauline (who came in from Kansas City), St. Pauline renewed her vows:
“In the presence of the Blessed Trinity and of Mary Immaculate, I Sr. Pauline de St. Eugene, renew with all my heart my profession of the evangelical counsels, which I made for the first time on June 27, 1941, and I promise God to observe faithfully the vows of Chastity, Poverty Obedience and Hospitality, which I have made forever in the Congregation of the Little Sisters of the Poor.”
Many stopped to congratulate and thank Sr. Pauline for her inspiring dedication and selfless service to the elderly for 70 years. Sr. Pauline continues her celebration with her 96th birthday on May 28th. She always has a smile on her face, a kind word for everyone she meets and a prayer in her heart for all those who have asked for prayers. God Bless you Sister!
