Archbishop Charles J. Chaput celebrated this year’s Annual Religious Jubilarian Mass on Sunday, Sept. 8 at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul. The Mass honors religious priests, sisters and brothers celebrating milestone anniversaries of 25 years or more. Of this year’s 253 jubilarians, 100 attended the Mass with their guests.
The 210 sisters, 37 priests and six religious brothers represent a combined 14,600 years of consecrated life. Included in this year’s honorees are more than 40 religious men and women who have served 70 years or more. During Mass the religious men and women renewed their vows to consecrated life.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
