Eight people made their initial commitments as Ursuline Associates on Oct. 23 and one associate made her lifetime commitment in a nearly full Mount Saint Joseph Motherhouse Chapel.
The 30th anniversary year of the associate program was completed with the largest fall commitment class ever. Three more people became associates in the spring during Associates and Sisters Day.
The Oct. 23 ceremony included evening prayer, featuring Sister Susanne Bauer, Sister Mary Matthias Ward and Sister Alfreda Malone. Sister Marietta Wethington delivered a reflection on Saint Angela’s message to us all, and Sister Clarita Browning read the intercessions. Sister Mary Henning drafted and led the music.
Here are pictures from the evening:
