image2The Feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8th, our traditional day for Renewal of Vows, was made very special for the Sisters at Schervier Nursing Care Center when Sister Jane Iannucelli, President,  and the members of the Congregation Council sent each Sister a Christmas poinsietta plant with prayers and wishes for a Happy Feast Day. In photos taken by Melissa Fogarty, joy and delight is evident as each Sister received her plant. Sisters Mary McCormick and Charlotte Raftery joined the Sisters in listening to a recording of Ave Maria and reciting a prayer composed by Sister Mary. The Sisters prayed the same Renewal of Vows formula prayed together by the Congregation during Mass at Mount Saint Vincent on December 4th.  To continue the celebration, Melissa provided delicious fresh fruit and juice refreshments.
