Twelve of the jubilarians are native to the Albany Diocese while 24 are native to the Syracuse Diocese. Seven jubilarians were born in the following dioceses: Baltimore, MD; Brooklyn, NY; Ogdensburg, NY (2); Boston, MA; Cincinnati, OH; and Worcester, MA. This year’s jubilarians have brought God’s Word to every part of the Albany and Syracuse Dioceses, to Plattsburgh, Brooklyn and the Bronx, to Hawaii and Peru, and to Missouri, Florida, New Jersey, Ohio, California, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Washington, Tennessee, Iowa, Michigan and Connecticut.

This year’s jubilarians include teachers in elementary and secondary schools and college; nurses; child-care workers; artists; hospital chaplains; social workers; outreach workers; office workers; spiritual directors; religious educators; parish ministers; pastoral associates; parish-life directors; community leaders; community in-service workers; administrators of all kinds; counselors; a physical therapist; a funeral director; a sculptor; a home-health aide; a house parent; a hospice chaplain; a cemetery family representative; an educational consultant; and a jail minister.

This year’s jubilarians do, indeed, give meaning to the command of our co-founder, Jean Pierre Médaille, SJ: “to perform all the spiritual and corporal works of mercy of which woman is capable and which will most benefit the dear neighbor.”
