As the summer sun slowly began to rise over the majestic Alps on the 18th of June something different was in the air. Exactly 100 years ago in this same place our beloved Sr. Bernhilde Roos, entered into our world. What a blessing her life would become for so many people, especially the little children. Now in 2013 the time had come to celebrate these past 100 years, and Bernhardzell in St. Gallen Canton, Switzerland, where Sister lives in a small community, was the honored site for the grand festival.
On June 22, 2013 another big feast came about in the Delegature of the Swizz Pallottine Sisters. Sr. Hermenegild Dörig from Niederuzwil and Sr. Adelhilde Rumpf from Bernhardzell celebrated their diamond Jubilee of profession. This time the festive community gathered in Gossau, Canton St. Gallen.
To the Eucharistic Celebration in the Vincent Pallotti Chapel of the Friedberg Secondary School the Pallottine Sisters were joined by a group of relatives of Sr. Hermenegild from Appenzell; Sr. Adelhilde´s only sister, was not able to be present due to her age and health condition. Among the festive assembly were also the president of the Swizz National Coordination Council of the UAC, Miss Melanie Dähler and, to the special joy of all, the Superior General of the Pallottine Sisters, Sr. Izabela Świerad, together with her two Councillors Sr. Stella Holisz and Sr. Maria Landsberger from Rome.
