A bit about Jubilee:

In the tradition of the Catholic Church, the word “Jubilee” is used to designate an anniversary year. Jubilee is a historical term for a time of celebration or rejoicing. Each year we honor our Jubilarians celebrating 25th, 40th, 50th, 60th, 65th, 70th or 75th anniversaries. The Wheaton Franciscan community commemorates the anniversary of the Sisters’ religious vows, as well as the anniversary of a Covenant Companion’s initial covenant.

Leading up to our Jubilee Livestream on June 24th, we will be sharing posts honoring the lives and gifts of these amazing women! We invite you to follow along on our social media and return here regularly in celebration and joy!
