On 25th March, we celebrated the Platinum Jubilee of Sister Dominic. This occasion marks seventy years of life consecrated to God through the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. The Jubilee day in St. Joseph’s Convent, Littlehampton, began with Mass celebrated by Rt. Rev. Richard Moth, Bishop of Arundel and Brighton and other concelebrants. The homily was preached by Fr. Richard Biggerstaff who knew Sister Dominic from Lourdes pilgrimages over the years.
Bishop Richard presented Sr. Dominic with a framed Papal blessing signed by Pope Francis. Mass was followed by a festive lunch in St. Joseph’s. We thank God and congratulate Sister Dominic for this inspiring witness of fidelity in wholehearted dedication to Christ and the Gospel message.
Sister Dominic made a pilgrimage to Lourdes in July-August with the Diocese to give thanks to God for the occasion of her Jubilee.
