Sister Emmanuel Bac's Golden Jubilee

The Assumption sisters joined Sister Emmanuel Bac celebrating her Golden Jubilee, through two celebratory masses at the Vietnamese Parish in Bow and in the Parish of Wanstead.

In 1969 at the youthful age of 20, Sister Emmanuel Bac decided to consecrate her life to God. Her exuberant energy reflects her 50 joyous years with the Assumption community. Through her struggles in Vietnam came the passion to spread God’s love, and with God’s grace, she was able to establish the Le Van Sy community in Vietnam. In London, she solidified a Vietnamese community of refugees and the generations to follow. She was able to continue her journey with bravery and compassion, as written on her ring: “for with God nothing will be impossible”  Lk 1:37 

Over the last two weeks, the Assumption community celebrated her Golden Jubilee. Once the Vietnamese mass at The Holy Name and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart in Bow ended, a traditional Vietnamese party filled with traditional dishes were served and was followed by a generous helping of desserts and cake. An ongoing serenade of Vietnamese songs quickly erupted once guests took their seats, with performances by the choir, children and the parish priests! 

After the renewal of her vows at Our Lady of Lourdes in Wanstead, the sisters and the Assumption community gathered for a beautiful garden party adorned with balloons, bunting and spectacular rays of sunlight. Although her immediate family in Vietnam and America could not physically celebrate with her, she was able to enjoy her milestones with her grand and multicultural extended family here in London.
