Sunday, Oct. 30, 2016 at St Theresa Church in West Roxbury, there will be a Mass at 3:00 PM to honor all the women religious (sisters) who are celebrating their 50th, 60th or beyond anniversaries. Sr Anne who grew up and resides in Readville, is a Sister of Charity of Nazareth. She taught most of her years at Most Precious Blood, St Anne and Archbishop Williams Schools. She is now a pillar of the Church at St. Anne's and coordinates the Friends of St Anne, who are responsible for the Art and Environment at the Church. We congratulate Sr. Anne and all the Jubilarians and pray that they may continue to be blessed with peace, happiness and good health.

The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth are an international Congregation in a multicultural world. Impelled by the love of Christ, in the tradition of Vincent de Paul and the pioneer spirit of Catherine Spalding, Sisters and Associates are committed to work for justice in solidarity with oppressed peoples, especially the economically poor and women, and to care for the earth. They risk their lives and resources, both personally and corporately, as they engage in diverse ministries in carrying out this mission.

The Blue Hills Collaborative is proud to congratulate Sr Ann Villa, a product of St Anne Parish, who is celebrating her 60th Anniversary as a Sister of Charity of Nazareth. Sr Ann has taught her entire life, and is proud to have been a teacher at 2 parishes of the Collaborative; St Anne School and Most Precious Blood School, as well as at Ursuline Academy and Archbishop Williams. She is now retired and living at her family home. The Friends of St Anne who volunteer and are responsible for the cleaning and upkeep of St Anne Church are under her auspices. In a church that continues to challenge us to grow and evolve in our understanding of God, Sr Ann is a wonderful mentor.
