Sisters celebrate 99th birthday for Sister Marie Montgomery and 91st for Sister Elaine Burke

The Ursuline Sisters gathered in Saint Joseph Villa on the afternoon of Jan. 27, 2022, to wish a happy 99th birthday to their most senior member, Sister Marie Montgomery, and happy 91st birthday to Sister Elaine Burke. Both Sisters can attribute their long lives to prayer and a refusal to ever stop moving.

Perhaps the two were fated to be Ursuline Sisters – their birthdays are on the feast day of Saint Angela Merici, founder of the Ursulines. Sisters continued the feast day festivities with cake and ice cream for the two “birthday girls.” Here are some pictures from the day.
