Sr. Helen Mizzi recently celebrated her diamond jubilee as a Sister of St. Dorothy. A large congregation filled St Joseph's Church, Redhill to honour her and the faithful service she, together with the other members of her Community, have given to the parish.

The Mass was celebrated by Dom Stephen Ortiger OSB, Episcopal Vicar for Religious in Arundel & Brighton Diocese. Sr Helen was joined by many relatives from her native Malta who had flown in especially for the occasion, a huge surprise as it was all arranged in secret. Also present from Malta was Sr. Doreen, the regional Superior of the Sisters of St. Dorothy.

Fr Stephen, in his homily, said Sr Helen has touched the lives of many in the community. It was particularly appropriate that the Mass should be for the Guardian Angels as Sr Helen, over the years, has been a guardian angel to many in need. 

As well as gifts and flowers she was thrilled to be presented with a Papal Blessing.
