The hosts, Sisters Ann Whittaker and Anne Marie O’Shea; and Sisters Pat Hill and Gwen McMahon vested Sister Marietta in a prayer shawl, symbolizing her caring and healing ministry. The group continued prayer through blessing and sharing breads representing the countries in which SCNs minister, celebrating the gift of water, and by renewing their vows. The celebration culminated in sharing a delicious turkey meal, cake and ice cream, and much camaraderie.
