On Saturday September 16, in BORAN SUR OISE (France), the Sisters of the Holy Cross of Jerusalem celebrated the 60th anniversary of their canonical recognition by the Church.
Bishop Jacques Benoit Gonnin of Beauvais-Noyon-Senlis presided over the Eucharistic celebration. Father Xavier de Verchère, National Chaplain of the Scouts et Guides de France, and priest friends concelebrated. The figure of Father Jacques Sevin, co-founder of the Sisters of the Holy Cross of Jerusalem, was widely evoked during the day, which brought together friends, families, relatives and parishioners around the sisters.
