Sr Marisa Valzasina and Sr Grace Matsumoto were presented with an apostolic blessing from Pope Francis for their dedication and service to the Archdiocese of Adelaide prior to their departure from Adelaide last month. After 57 years the Daughters of St Paul have closed their bookshop and media centre in Adelaide. Following last year’s thanksgiving Mass for the Daughters of St Paul’s presence in SA, Bishop Greg O’Kelly SJ reiterated his gratitude to the Sisters who were visibly touched by the papal blessing. He is pictured with, from left, Sr Grace, Sr Marisa and Fr Philip Marshall.
