As Jayne awaited the birth of her first grandchild, participants joined her in a three-day vigil. Finally, during the group’s trip to Lyon, Jayne received word that a healthy baby girl, Ida Jayne, was born. Everyone celebrated the event with tears, smiles, and dancing.

The group bonded together almost from the start of the program. Many friendships were made as members told stories about their lives, their work, and their desire to be connected to the mission and ministries of the Sisters of St. Joseph.
