Four women joined the ranks of Associates of the Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph on Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2018, at a 4:30 prayer service in the Motherhouse Chapel. For the past few years, there has been an Associate Fall Commitment for those unable to attend Associates and Sisters Day in June. The new associates are Christa Bennett, Amanda Nichols and Becky Pedley of Owensboro, Ky., and Patricia “Pat” Gregory of Paducah, Ky.
The Owensboro Associates decided to attend the commitment ceremony in lieu of their regular monthly meeting. Several were in the audience to welcome the new associates. After the prayer service, the group enjoyed a meal with the Ursuline Sisters in the Motherhouse dining room. There are more than 400 Ursuline Associates across the U.S. and in Chile and Africa.
