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.
