Saturday, April 22, 2006.  Sisters of Providence 150th Jubilee Mass.  The Sisters of Providence celebrate 150 years of ministry in the Pacific Northwest.  The provincial of the Mother Joseph Province, Sister Margaret Botch, SP, stands before an image of the five foundresses, among them the redoubtable Mother Joseph.

Sister Karin Dufault, SP models the traditional habit worn by Sisters of Providence for more than 100 years.

During the celebration, several of the sisters who are celebrating jubilees renewed their vows as Sisters of Providence.  Above, Susan Orlowski and Helene Maynard renew their vows.

Archbishop Brunett preached and presided at the Mass.

A special altar cloth was created for this Mass.  The antique lace was made by the sisters more than 100 years ago.

The festival choir included many friends of the Sisters of Providence, among them two young nuns from Uganda, studying at Seattle University.
