The bicentennial will be celebrated during the 11:30 a.m. Mass and at a reception after Mass.
The Daughters of Mary and Joseph were founded in Belgium in 1817 and came to California in 1926.
They have served at St. Paul the Apostle in Los Angeles since 1935, primarily through St. Paul the Apostle School.
The parish writes:
“We look forward to celebrating the Daughters of Mary and Joseph past and present, and give special thanks for the dedication of Sister Stella, Sister Enda, and Sister Theresa, who grace us with their faith and wisdom every day at St. Paul the Apostle School.”

We pray in thanksgiving to God for these dedicated women religious! May God bless them and all they do!
