How grateful we are to our Associates in Mission and our ‘Sister-Cooks’ who made
Nuns Who Cook
such an enjoyable, successful event! Elly Kline, Chair of the event, Janet Beerley, Dannah Addalli and Marylou Montuoro, all Associates in Mission, worked with the Development and Communications Office staffs and the staff at Saint Joseph Villa to provide a great experience of Sisters and Associates coming together to have fun and provide support for our Villa sisters.
The event opened with a warm welcome from
Sister Anne Myers SSJ
, Congregational President. “Thank you for coming here tonight. There is a psalm in the Bible, Psalm number 34, which says, ‘Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.’ I think tonight we could paraphrase that to say, ‘Taste and see the good things of our
Nuns Who Cook
and their wonderful partners, our SSJ associates and friends’. We are grateful to them for devoting their time and culinary skills to giving our palates a delectable treat that we will long remember!
For many of you, I am sure that this your first time in our lovely Villa dining room, which was part of our recent renovation. So please enjoy this sampling of foods, in the company of friends and family, in this lovely setting! Thank you for supporting the Sisters of Saint Joseph, and most especially, our sisters here at Saint Joseph Villa. Please know that we remember you and your families each day in our prayers.”
Thank you to our generous sponsors and to all who advertised in the Program Book. We truly appreciate all those who contributed raffle baskets and bottles of wine, and we are grateful to the three judges who decided the winners in each cooking category.
Congratulations to the Sister/Associate Teams who won the coveted medals and bragging rights.
