Sister Ann, SSJ, and Sister Alice, SSJ, are celebrating 65 years of service, and Sister Elaine, SSJ, is celebrating her 60th year of service. That’s a combined 190 years of service for the three Sisters, who have devoted most of their lives to their religion.
Sister Ann, who is also celebrating 25 years of service at Union Catholic, works with the Counseling Department at UC. Sister Elaine has volunteered in the Counseling Department at UC for the last eight years, and Sister Alice helps set up for events at UC, and if often selling her “Morning Star Chocolates” , a cottage industry that sends its proceeds into the retirement fund of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Chestnut Hill.
Union Catholic Principal Sister Percylee Hart, RSM, said Sister Ann, Sister Alice, and Sister Elaine are an integral part of the Union Catholic Community.
“I’m very grateful that they continue to be in our midst here, bringing their gifts and talents and dedication to religion and service to our school,’’ said Sister Percylee. “They have all made their presence felt here.’’
