Sister Devota LaVoie – Birthdays 101

Happy Birthday Cupcakes

Sister Devota LaVoie, OSB, celebrated her 101th birthday with Sisters on Benet Hall on Wednesday afternoon, July 27.   Sisters from throughout the Community came to sing Happy Birthday and enjoy cupcakes and other snacks with their second oldest  member (Sister Thea Sandusky is  102 or 103  or . . . well, who’s counting anymore?).

  A special moment came when Paule Barbeau, who recently “knocked on the door” to become an Affiliate with St. Scholastica Monastery, stopped by to chat with Sister Devota.  One of the oldest Community members found something in common with one of the potentially newest members—French was the first language for both of them.  Thank you, Sister Devota, for sharing your life and delightful humor with us!
