Sister Naomi Aull celebrates 80 years as an Ursuline Sister

The 13 Ursuline Sisters celebrating jubilees of religious profession in 2023 represent 895 years of serving God’s people. We are blessed to have two Sisters celebrating 80 years. The first is Sister Naomi Aull, a native of Knottsville, Ky.

Sister Naomi was formerly Sister Mary Benigna. Sister Naomi was taught by Ursulines all of her life, and modeled that love and concern as an Ursuline teacher for 32 years. She then spent 25 years in outreach ministry to the poor in Louisville. She graduated from Brescia College in Owensboro, Ky., in 1965.

Sister Naomi taught at Sacred Heart School, Farmington, N.M. (1945-48), Blessed Mother, Owensboro, Ky. (1948-52), St. John, Plattsmouth, Neb. (1952-53), St. Teresa, Glennonville, Mo. (1953-54), Holy Trinity, Fredericksburg, Ky. (1954-57), St. Charles, Lebanon, Ky. (1957-58), St. Thomas More, Paducah, Ky. (1958-61) and Holy Cross, Loretto, Ky. (1961-62). In Louisville, she taught at St. Margaret Mary (1962-69), Mother of Good Counsel (1970-71), St. Ignatius (1971) and St. Leonard (1972-77).

For 25 years in Louisville, beginning in 1977, she served in outreach ministry to the poor at St. Boniface Parish and then at St. Martin of Tours’ Schuhmann Social Service Center. While at St. Martin, she helped low-income elderly residents at the Hillebrand House fill out their paperwork. She retired to Mount Saint Joseph in 2002, where she helped distribute mail for three years and was a volunteer caregiver for the Ursuline Sisters in Saint Joseph Villa. She is retired and active in the Powerhouse of Prayer.

Congratulations Sister Naomi!
