Sissy Ward, who creates awesome, magical center pieces for our Monastery Receptions and other dinners, received a 15-year pin.  She is on the left below.  Postulant Leilani (on right) helped serve coffee.  She is wearing her postulant medal and her postulant apron (which signifies labora, or work), but not postulant headgear.

Two Environmental Services employees had received their 5-year pins, Susan Pearson and Liann Valentine, a couple of days earlier.  Sister Marilyn entertained the crowd of about 83 of the employees with a Christmas story about the charms of belief.
