In an atmosphere of happiness and deep gratitude, Sister Lusiana Puleosi celebrated her Jubilee, marking 50 years since she was professed as a Sister of Compassion.

The celebration took place at the Home of Compassion, Island Bay, the very place where Lusi’s life of service began. At the Jubilee, Lusi enjoyed the company of 16 sisters and around 80 family members and friends, who had travelled from Australia and different parts of Aotearoa to help her celebrate.

“Now in my Jubilee year, as I look back I’ve enjoyed every minute as a sister. I thank God for my vocation”, she said. Lusi was grateful to be amongst those closest to her, as they gathered for Mass celebrated by Father James Lyons.

The guests continued the celebration by sharing kai together. “I’m happy about my Jubilee!” Lusi concluded.
