Sisters of Cluny celebrate nun's 75th anniversary

IT was only two months ago that Sister Angela Cavey celebrated her 97th birthday.

And yesterday she was hosted to a special lunch by the Sisters of Cluny and the St Joseph's Secondary School Alumni to mark her 75th year as a Cluny nun.

"I am very happy today," said Sister Cavey in a slow, soft whisper.

"I didn't expect so many people today. This makes me realise the power of the Lord and the happiness that I have attained by spreading the good gospel."

Sister Cavey came to Fiji in 1967. Being a teacher, she spent six years in Fiji before going to other countries in the region and finally coming back to Fiji to stay.

"I am truly blessed to have the love of friends and family.

"Over the years they have been a very vital part of my life."

Pule Sukanaivalu, the president of the St Joseph's Secondary School Alumni, said Sister Cavey was a wealth of experience and knowledge.

"We jumped at the first opportunity to organise something for a woman who has been a tower of strength over the years," she said. "This is a happy occasion and all I hope is that the younger generation learn the value of dedication and sacrifice from Sister Cavey."
