The Holy Spirit Adoration Sisters (the Pink Sisters) are celebrating their 100th anniversary at the Convent of Divine Love this year. The cloister is located at 22nd and Green Streets in the Spring Garden neighborhood of Philadelphia.
A special Mass to close the year-long commemoration will be celebrated on Saturday, Nov. 28 at 7 a.m. in the chapel. Father Peter Burkauskas, pastor of nearby St. Andrew Parish, will celebrate the Mass in honor of the order’s foundress, Blessed Mary Virgo of Germany.
The Lithuanian Choir of the parish will sing a selection of hymns and other pieces and be accompanied by an ensemble of instrumentalists including oboe, violin and flute, as well as the chapel’s baroque pipe organ.
