Three Sisters of Charity, BVM Celebrate Golden Jubilees

“Let Us Be Grateful” was the theme that three Sisters of Charity, BVM chose for their Golden Jubilee celebration this year.

BVMs Linda Roby, Lynn Winsor and Joan Nuckols (above, l. to r.)  joined fellow sisters, family, colleagues and friends at Mount Carmel July 28–30 in Dubuque, Iowa. The three-day celebration featured Hawaiian, Latino and Italian themes at dinner and in dress and entertainment.

In her Welcome, BVM President Teri Hadro shared, “Welcome to this golden moment . . . Our golden jubilarians have spent the past 50 years helping others grow in the freedom of the children of God.”

She noted that Linda continues to remove barriers for hearing impaired persons in the Archdiocese of Portland, Ore., and at Xavier College Preparatory in Phoenix, Joan and Lynn have expanded the horizons, hopes and dreams of their students, helping the young women to believe in themselves.

Jubilarians Joan, Linda and Lynn shared their gratitude to their fellow sisters who have accompanied them on their journey during the past 50 years and who helped in making their Golden Jubilee celebration a unique and memorable event.
