Sisters and Associates gathered at the Catherine Spalding House in Brockton, Massachusetts, on Saturday, May 4 with provincial Mary Elizabeth Miller, SCN, to celebrate the Kentucky Derby, for conversation, to bless Shirley Howe, SCN, and to celebrate the birthday of Joanne Sylvester, SCNA. Evelyn Hurley, SCN, was a special guest. The blessing was a farewell for Sister Shirley Howe who will move to Nazareth this summer. Derby hats were to order of the day. There was no controversy as the first prize was awarded to Sister Shirley.
