The Villa Maria Academy community celebrated the diamond and golden jubilees of Sr. Anne Marie Lavan, IHM, and Sr. Mary Smith, IHM. The school gathered in the Marian Center for a Celebration of Faithfulness to recognize Sr. Anne Marie’s 60 years and Sr. Mary’s 50 years of commitment, faith and service. The sisters renewed their vows during the Mass, which was also attended by family and friends of the jubilarians. Afterwards, they were presented with gifts and then enthusiastically serenaded by the student body.
Villa Maria thanks these wonderful sisters for their outstanding examples of faith and service to others.
