Renewal Of Vows

On July 2, 2018, Janet Lawrence renewed her vows during a community liturgy at Villa Maria Convent. The celebrant was Father Fred Pelligrino, SJ, a friend of Janet and of the CND Community. Father has great devotion to Marguerite. Sr. Mary Anne Powers was present to accept Janet’s vows. The community shared in the beautiful celebration with support, prayers and blessings and was followed by a festive dinner. We prayed: “Go, Janet, like Mary and Elizabeth, living the gifts of the Spirit.

Our prayers are with you, Janet.
