Forty Years of Federation - July 2007

Local Whanganui Sisters gathered on Saturday 28 July to celebrate the Australia-New Zealand Federation of Sisters of St Joseph which came into being on 28 July 1967.

The prayer involved lighting a candle for each of the 5 branches, and Sisters shared their personal experiences of Federation.  Sisters, both living and dead, who had been influential in individual friendships were recalled and remembered.

Francesca Bourke is shown lighting a candle to honour one of the branches of our Federation.
