Sr. Severine hails from Santa Cruz, the only daughter was born on 24th November who choose to commit her life to Jesus and professed her first vows on 7th November 1973. She served the Congregation and the Church with her committed and dedicated service with passion for long years in the clerical department at Perpetual Succour Convent High School Navelim, Pastoral work, family visits and in the mission of Ajra in Maharashtra after her retirement.

A person with green fingers. I remember as a student of Perpetual Succour Convent, Navelim, the garden was colourful with variety of rose plants besides vegetable garden. Very responsible, clean and methodical in her given tasks. She still continues her mission by praying for the church and the world as she lives at Eleanora Linse Bhavan, Sancoale.

With a grateful heart she thanked God and everyone, with few words of gratitude, appreciation and thanks giving.

Holy Family Music School Choir, helped the gathering to participate in the Eucharist with their melodious voices.

After, cutting of the cake, with love and gratitude, the SFN sisters presented a mando on Sr. Severina life in honouring her.
