Women religious jubilarians celebrate


Women religious celebrating their jubilees renew their vows at a special Mass celebrated by Cardinal Seán P. O’Malley at St. Theresa of Avila Church in West Roxbury Sept. 13. All together, the lives of the 184 jubiliarians represent 10,895 years of combined service to the Church. Pilot photo/Gregory L. Tracy
