Giving thanks for Sr Joyce's 70 years of faithful ministry

St Monica’s Palmers Green was packed to capacity as Bishop John Sherrington joined priests past and present to celebrate a Mass of Thanksgiving for the 70th Anniversary of Profession of Sr Joyce Dionne, Parish Sister for 22 years. Sr Joyce, a Daughter of Providence, was born and raised in Canada, and taught for many years at St Angela’s and Holy Family (now St Anne’s High School for Girls). She has worked full time in the parish since her retirement from teaching. After Mass there was a party, where Bishop John gave thanks to God for her faithful ministry thus far and prayed for blessings on her continuing service to the community.
