Marist Sisters from the Sector of Aotearoa New Zealand held their Assembly at Mt Albert from July 11th- 13th. Sister Julie Brand, Regional Superior, facilitated the election of Sector Assistants Catherine Lawson and Marie Challacombe. Unfortunately the four sisters from the North of New Zealand were prevented from coming because their route was flooded.
On the Sunday, to acknowledge the Diamond Jubilee of Srs Marie Challacombe and Rose Harris, a Mass was celebrated by Fr David Kennerley, sm in the Mt Albert community chapel and followed by a special meal and the cutting of the Jubilee cake. Unfortunately Sr Rose Harris was prevented from attending the celebration because of the floods in the north. However her jubilee candle and her photo were placed in the chapel during the Mass.
