In celebrating a Birthday, we celebrate the gift of God's love and life. It is in this spirit that Sister M. James celebrated her 99th Birthday.
Holy Mass and Holy Communion high-lighted the day as her family and Sisters-in-Christ celebrated 99 years of love and service of the Lord.
A few days before Sister's Birthday, her family came from Ohio and rejoiced with Sister James, and after a fine dinner and opening of gifts, they enjoyed several games of Pinochle. Sister played hard and was determined to win.
We, her Sisters-in-Christ also celebrated with Sister James. Her place at table was filled with flowers, cards, small gifts and special desserts made by one of her friends: maple cookies.
The most precious gift was the love and friendship shared by all who were present.
God bless you, Sister M. James!
