Golden Moments

 

As you will have seen, we hold a Golden Moments initiative here at St Michaels. These are golden tickets to showcase and share special moments that are seen between the staff here at St Michaels and our residents, which may not be otherwise truly celebrated or recorded. Nominations can be made by staff, residents, friends and family.All you have to do is, make a note of a golden moment where you have seen a member of staff with either your loved one or another resident. Pop it on a golden ticket and place it in the box which is now placed on our Reception desk. All golden moments will be placed into a draw and a winner will be picked at the end of each month by our Home Manager Rema πŸ₯°

Hilda was the nominated winner for April, we look forward to seeing who it will be for May πŸ‘€

Sister Alma`s 70th Jubilee

 

In the tradition of the Catholic Church, the word β€œJubilee” is used to designate an anniversary year. Each year the Catholic Church honour our Jubilarians and this year Sr Alma celebrates her 70th Jubilee with us here at St Michaels 🍾

Jubilee years are counted from the date of one’s first profession. What a wonderful gift to celebrate the anniversaries of our Sisters who profess vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. It truly is a public proclamation that Religious Consecration is Baptismal Consecration lived deeply. Congratulations Sr AlmaπŸ€©πŸŽ‚

To celebrate we had a visit from the Ursuline SVP group where a few of the students showed us their talents -Including singing, guitar playing and the clarinet. We enjoyed lots of cake, a game of pass the parcel and to end the afternoon, everyone joined in singing along to some of Sr Alma`s favourite songs. It really was a special day πŸ₯°

We enjoy live music at least once a week here at St Michaels. Music is the best therapy! Below are some photos from recent performances including Le Chapeau, Laura and Gary. 🎸🎀
