Several members of Sister Miriam's family, including her sister, were able to be present, which made the day especially meaningful for her.
We will be bringing you more of Sister Miriam's Golden Jubilee celebration soon, as it hasn't stopped yet! Today was the Mass--a public celebration--but in May we will have a community celebration of Sister's life and vocation. May God grant you many more years as a cloistered Dominican nun, Sister!
