Unfortunately, not all of the European jubilarians could be present in Ghent;
The African and Asian jubilarians were united with their European sisters in heart and spirit. And all were remembered in the prayers of intercession.
Mgr. Van Looy, the Bishop of Ghent, was the chief celebrant and our Eucharistic celebration was graced by the beautiful music and singing of the polyphonic choir.
This was followed by cheerful meeting and greetings and stories of lived experiences;
a delicious meal was prepared and served by our lovely and gracious collaborators.

The years of commitment are accumulating, and so too is our enthusiasm and gratitude for everything the Lord has and is accomplishing here and around the world.

It was a joyful celebration of thanksgiving and jubilation.
