The Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph who taught at Blessed Mother School in Owensboro, Ky., were honored on Jan. 29, 2015 with a Mass, lunch and tours as part of National Catholic Schools Week. Several Ursuline Sisters were in attendance at the morning event which took place at Blessed Mother Church, the nearby Owensboro Catholic Schools 4-6 Campus, the parish hall and the rectory (former convent).
Nearly 80 Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph have taught at Blessed Mother School since 1948. The last sister to teach there was Sister Mary Timothy Bland, who taught from 1986-2004, including the years the school was known as Saint Angela Merici. She now teaches at the Catholic K-3 campus near Our Lady of Lourdes Parish. Sister Mary Timothy attended the day’s events.
Current Ursuline Sisters who taught at Blessed Mother but could not attend are Sister Naomi Aull, Sister Pauletta McCarty, Sister Mary Diane Taylor, Sister Helen Leo Ebelhar, Sister Amanda Rose Mahoney, Sister Mary Lois Speaks, Sister Marie Carol Cecil and Sister Dianna Ortiz.
Here are pictures from the event.
