Sisters farewelled from Levin - 15/10/06

For some years, Sr Maria Goretti has been the sole Sister of St Joseph in Levin. However recently she knew it was time for her to transfer to Whanganui. Her moving marked the end of an 83 year presence of Sisters of St Joseph in the town. The occasion was marked by a Thanksgiving Mass followed by morning tea in the school. Sisters attending were given a tour of the new administration block and classrooms and were happy to see that wood from the old convent had been incorporated in to various items of furniture in the administration block.

The photo shows some of the Sisters who were previously teachers in the St Joseph’s School, and who attended the farewell. From left are Sisters Maria Goretti, John Bosco Kendall, Therese Devon, Marie Roche and standing is Paula Brettkelly.
