Warm and happy memories

Thank you for highlighting the milestone anniversaries of the ordained and consecrated men and women who serve(d) the Diocese of Trenton. To paraphrase the words of Bishop O’Connell...we are grateful that they are “still here”.

I would like to extend congratulations and warm wishes filled with gratitude to Sister Angelica Cristiani, who celebrates 75 years as a Religious Teacher Filippini. 

 Sister Angelica resided at the convent on the campus of Villa Victoria Academy during my tenure as principal of the Lower School (2000-2007). During this time, Sister Angelica helped etch special memories in the hearts of the young ladies enrolled at the school.  Each year, she invited the girls, class by class, to the convent where she hosted a Cookies and Hot Chocolate Party. (Sister lovingly baked dozens of cookies to share with her invited guests.)  

We, staff and students, looked forward to this special treat and enjoyed spending time with Sister Angelica and the sisters who lovingly assisted in the preparation. 

 Thank you, Sister Angelica for sharing your special gifts with us. God bless you!!!

Mary Ann Hughes, Robbinsville
