A lovely afternoon tea was organised by Family Care Services and Michelle Willison our Health and Wellbeing Coordinator. Sr Kathleen Cotterill LCM Region Leader and Sr Monica Whelan LCM from Region Leadership celebrated with Marie Therese on this day. Sr Kathleen congratulated Marie Therese on her sixty (60) years as a religious sister in the little Company of Mary and all she has given with her life of service to the sick, dying and those in need.

Marie Therese’s celebration commenced with a liturgy she had prepared which highlighted her motto: Deo Gratius and her sense of gratitude for all with cherished memories both past and present whilst anticipating the future with joy.

As the celebration came to completion Marie Therese shared her words of thanks highlighting her gratitude for the kindness and generosity of all those who have been a very important part of her life. Thank you, Marie Therese. Congratulations!
