Western Kentucky Associates bring smiles with a visit from Santa and his elves

Ursuline Associates from Western Kentucky made their annual visit to Saint Joseph Villa on Dec. 3, 2022, celebrating the Saturday closest to Saint Nicholas day with presents and smiles for the Ursuline Sisters.

The Sisters were overjoyed with the visit, which featured plenty of elves, Mrs. Claus and the big man himself, Santa. The Associates – who live in Paducah, Mayfield, Barlow and Hopkinsville – work on the celebration year round. They once put on a party for the Sisters in the Rainbow Room, but last year began visiting the Sisters in their rooms due to Covid protocols.

The presents for the Sisters included a poinsettia, cookies and candy, a suncatcher for their windows, tissues, socks and personal items. Here are the photos from the day.

      The Western Kentucky Associates did it again! They brought life, happiness and treasures galore! Each year they give of their time, energy, joy, and gifts in abundance to our Villa Sisters. We treasure them because they are self-giving and travel a distance to come and share in so many ways! Thanks to each of you. You are GIFT from God. Thanks so much. Sr. Elaine Burke
