Congratulations, here and there



On Aug. 23, a Mass and bittersweet reception was held at St. Bridget Church in Glassboro for the Franciscan Missionary Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Sister M. Bernarda Ribeiro, above, was bid farewell, as she leaves for Rome to assume her new responsibility of General Counselor for the FMIHM at the General House. At right, Sister M. Dorothy Aloisio and Sister M. Rita DeFlavia, celebrating their 50th anniversaries of profession, renew their vows in front of Father Matthew Weber, St. Bridget pastor.
