A group of 15 Sisters, Associates, friends and neighbors gathered at St. Joseph Faculty House to mark its closure as a local SNJM house in Seattle. Its last residents have now moved to Spokane or other Seattle places or, in the case of Ann Cornelia Sullivan, SNJM, seen in the photo on the mantel, gone to heaven.
“We voiced many grateful memories of 41 years of occupancy, bringing much laughter, and shared bountiful appetizers and desserts,” said Linda Riggers, SNJM.
Judy Ryan, SNJM convened the group and led joyful conversation and prayers. A particular blessing was the knowledge that many household goods have been given to a Honduran refugee family.
