Sisters and Associates hold a prayer service in Paola cemetery

Ursuline Sisters and Associates visited the former Motherhouse of the Ursuline Sisters of Paola, Kan., on June 4, 2022, to have a prayer service in the cemetery. The former convent is now home to Arista Recovery, a substance abuse treatment facility.
