The Class of 1967 held its 50th reunion on June 11th, 50 years to-the-day since graduation.
The students haven’t forgotten their teachers! Months ago they wrote and asked for contact information, so they could invite their teachers to join in the reunion.
Sharleen Soscia Rustici, the reunion coordinator writes:
The young woman in the photo is Suneeta Saleem. She is a Junior RJM and has recently passed, with honors, her studies for Masters in Finance. She was selected to represent her college, The University of Lahore, at a Research Symposium held in a University in Islamabad. Suneeta is from a family living in a Basti in Shadbagh, one of the most underdeveloped areas of Lahore. She is a graduate of the school we opened there in the early 90’s.
Once I was asked if I felt I had achieved anything worthwhile during my many years spent in Pakistan.
Our four sisters from Haiti and the Leadership Team spent an enjoyable and fruitful four days together last week. From May 3 to 6, in exchanges and discussions facilitated by Ms. Marisa Guerin, our missionaries shared information and concerns about their situations and projects in Gros Morne and Jean Rabel.
Together we studied our ministries in light of the values that can promote systemic change.
This study is a ‘work in progress,’ but we hope that these values can guide future planning for ministry in Haiti.

Dear Sister Marge and all our Sisters in the Province,
In the name of our dear Mother Cecilia and of our community, we want to thank you for all the love you have shown M. Cecilia, especially on this occasion of her 115th Birthday, expressed in so many cards, good wishes, prayers, and gifts, all of which are greatly appreciated. The 25th was a great day of thanksgiving for her life, totally given to the Lord during her 92 years of religious profession.
Recently the 13th Street Community had the joy of hosting Sr. Yudith Pereira, RJM, for a long weekend. Yudith, from the Province of Spain, is currently the Assistant Executive Director of the organization Solidarity with South Sudan. She was in the USA to meet with Sr. Joan Mumaw, who directs the not-for-profit US organization, Friends in Solidarity, that helps to support this work, an inter-Congregational enterprise that sponsors five communities presently ministering in South Sudan. Altogether, more than 260 Congregations are supporting this project.
QUEST — Volunteers for Haiti is an opportunity for women and men to live in community with sisters of the Religious of Jesus and Mary in Gros Morne, Haiti (4 hours north of PAP), ministering with the people of Haiti to impact the future of the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.
You may recall that in the Summer 2015 issue we highlighted QUEST one-month volunteers assisting with Camp Claudine, a Summer Camp for over 300 children.
