Sr Stani, Sister of Mercy Brisbane Congregation, celebrates her 103rd birthday

A 103 year old with a Social Secretary kept busy all year, but particularly in the weeks surrounding her birthday.  Who other than Stani… Sister Stanislaus Zgrajewski. 

We are celebrating Stani’s 103rd birthday at ‘Holy Cross’ Aged Care, Wooloowin.

Inspirada a Servir

Después de trabajar en el departamento de finanzas de una compañía de producción de música por 20 años, nunca me imaginé que tendría que buscar trabajo de nuevo.
