Mercy Sister Mary Stanislaus celebrated her 100th Birthday on May 31 at McAuley Hall Health Care Center, Watchung, although her official birthday was on June 2. To begin the afternoon, she was honored by crowning the Blessed Mother. Pictured with her as an assistant was Mercy Sister Rita McGurk, standing to her left. After a moving May Crowning in chapel, the group moved to another space for the cutting of the cake and much singing to celebrate the occasion.  Sister Stanislaus will also celebrate her 60th Jubilee as a Sister of Mercy in September. – Mercy Sister Marjorie Smith photo
