The Associate Signing and Associate Jubilarian celebration took place in the Motherhouse Chapel on Sunday, September 9th. Mass in the morning included recognizing Jubilarians who were living or deceased and blessing the Jubilarians who were present. After the noon meal the prayer service focused on a large window in front of the altar and offered prayers, songs and a meditation about our views through a window and the seasons of our lives. The celebration continued with a reception in the afternoon. The 25 year Jubilarins were: Delores Emmert, Becky Koors, Beverly Pardieck and Jeanne Susalla. Fifteen year jubilarians were: Kathy Born, Mary Bollinger, Alberta Bretnitz, Diane Liptack and Lois Mirizzi.
