Sts. Joseph and Paul Church honors Ursuline connection

As part of celebrating its 125th anniversary this year and in 2012, Sts. Joseph and Paul Catholic Church in Owensboro, Ky., held a dinner and program on Nov. 6 to honor the Ursuline Sisters and priests who have a history with the parish. Ground was broken for St. Paul Church in 1887, and it was announced it would merge with St. Joseph Church – which was across the street – in 1948. The celebration, which will culminate in July 2012, celebrates the histories of both churches. Two sisters who taught in the school and two who grew up in the parish were able to attend, while several other sisters were present to support them.
