Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Since my arrival at St John the Baptist I have been blessed to witness first-hand the beautiful work done by Sr Rita in her ministry to the parish homebound. Her faith and devotion to these individuals are very much appreciated, and offer a concrete connection to their parish during trying circumstances. This ministry is one she carries out with a joy that is evident whenever she speaks of those she serves.
As Sr. Rita celebrates her 60th Jubilee of her Profession of Vows, on behalf of St John the Baptist Parish, I would like to extend a heartfelt Congratulations and appreciation for her and her service to our community. After the Marshfield Clinic purchased the St Joseph Hospital, her role in her ministry dramatically changed, but her heart has remained steadfast. Her witness at daily Mass, her willingness to assist at many of our funerals as well as her witness and faithfulness as a Professed Sister of the Sorrowful Mother are a blessing to our faith community.
I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Sr. Barbara on the 65th anniversary of her Profession of Vows. Her dedication to those she served and continues to serve in various ministries is a powerful witness to many in our community.
May God’s Blessings continue to rain upon you.
