A Celebratory Eucharist was held at Southwark Cathedral on Saturday 26th February 2005, at which Catherine Joy CSF presided, the Very Reverend Colin Slee, Dean of Southwark Cathedral preached and the Bishop Protector, Michael Scott-Joynt received the Renewal of the Sisters' Vows.

Source of all mercies and consolation,
may we live to praise you.
Make the homage we pay you reasonable;
season our sacrifices with the salt of wisdom.
As we continue to walk in the footsteps of Christ
in the way of Francis and Clare,
may our entire being be transformed into your image,
through Jesus Christ our Saviour. Amen
