St. Patrick’s Day 2014

Perhaps it was the corned beef and cabbage for lunch, but the Ursuline Sisters at the Motherhouse in Maple Mount were in a good mood to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on May 17, filling the Rainbow Room in Saint Joseph Villa for a 2:30 p.m. shindig.

Treated to shamrock-shaped cookies and green punch, the luck o’ the Irish was in full bloom as Debbie Dugger, coordinator of activities, led a discussion on the history of the holiday. Here are some photos from the day.

    Love these pictures! At first I thought those cups of green were Jello shots. Maybe they were??!!!! A special hello to Sister Lou, Sister Marie, and of course my aunt, Sister Michael Ann, who I was named after. So many wonderful spirits in these pictures whom I hope to see this summer.

    I remember the Sisters used to have cake walks at St. Mary’s grade school and Lourdes H.S. in Nebraska City.

    It’s so good to see the Sisters having fun and enjoying St Patricks Day ! I think I would also liked to sample some of those wonderful looking cookies!!!!! Blessings sent from Kansas love you all.

    Wonderful pictures! Such a good service to let us “outsiders” get glimpses of our Sisters and the activities of a place so alive.
