Jubilee Sisters celebrated by the Diocese and Council of Religious

Beautiful words and music accompanied sisters from several congregations on Oct. 22, 2022, during the Diocese of Owensboro’s Jubilee for Women Religious.

Gathering at St. Martin Catholic Church in the Daviess County community of Rome, the Council of Religious and Bishop William Medley honored 13 sisters from four communities celebrating jubilees, although only four could attend – Ursuline Sisters Ruth Gehres, Rose Jean Powers and Sharon Sullivan, and Glenmary Sister Pat Leighton.

Bishop Medley praised the Sisters who “go to the world,” whether that means praying in their room or physically going to another part of the world.

“You have been given wonderful gifts from God to be given away,” he said.

Here are some photos from the day.
