This year, 2021, Sister Hermine Jaschko, Sister Ida’s first companion, celebrates 80 years of Religious Profession! We also celebrated Sister Hermine’s 102nd birthday on May 20 this year. As we pray in gratitude for her faithfulness and love, we invite you to watch these videos from her 75th anniversary in 2016. At the celebration held at St. Euphrasia Catholic Church in Granada Hills, Sister Hermine renewed her vows and shared the story of her profession of First vows in 1941. She is joyful witness of the goodness of God’s call to consecrated religious life and the grace of perpetual fidelity in love. Enjoy!
At the Reception following the event, we sang a song in her honor entitled “By Your Love.” This song echoes the way Sister Hermine has shown Christ’s love throughout her entire religious life. Sister Sophia, a vocation from Hungary, introduced the song as she stood next to Sister Mary, our Superior General.
