For the fifth year, Ursuline Associates from Western Kentucky and the Ursuline Sisters who serve there came to Saint Joseph Villa on Dec. 2, 2017, to celebrate the feast of Saint Nicholas by throwing a party for the sisters. The associates work throughout the year preparing for the party and will begin planning for next year’s the day after Christmas, said Associate Risë Karr. The sisters in the Villa were served treats, got festive headwear to keep, and received presents from the associates.
The Ursuline Associates who planned the event and attended were Risë Karr, Sid Mason, Betty Boren, Mike Sullivan, Lois Bell and Phyllis Troutman. Sister Teresa Riley and Sister Martha Keller, who meet with the Western Kentucky Associates, also served the sisters. Associates John and Elaine Wood helped plan the event, but could not attend this year. Here are some pictures from the day.
