A Beautiful Celebration

Yesterday's celebration was magnificent!  In fact the entire day was a day of celebration.  We gathered for Mass at Notre Dame Church in Malone and had a beautiful celebration.  Bishop Terry LaValley was the celebrant.  He spoke so eloquently about the history of the Ursulines in the North Country and the gift that the sisters have been for the past 118 years.  The Church was filled to the rafters and it was so nice to have the opportunity to greet the people of the parish at the reception after.  Later in the day we gathered at the sister's home and celebrated together.  We shared stories, memories and prayed for all those who have served in the North Country.  It truly was a beautiful, bittersweet experience for all.  We leave today confident that St. Angela and the Ursuline legacy will always remain in the midst of the people of the North Country!
