The Holy Spirit Sisters are marking two important milestones this month.

During the 10:30 a.m. Mass on. Dec. 15 at St. Rose of Lima Church in Northeast Portland, they will celebrate the opening of their community's jubilee year. The Sisters were founded in Tanzania in 1964 by a German missionary, Father Bernhard Bendel. The first Sisters came from Germany but soon local women were inspired to join. The community also has houses Germany, the Philippines and India.

This also marks 20 years since the Sisters came to serve in Portland. They specialize in caring for frail elders.
