January 17, 2014 by

Sisters and family crowded the Nazareth Center on the fourth floor of the Motherhouse this afternoon (Jan. 17) for a double birthday celebration.

Today is Dr. Nancy Welsh’s 75th birthday while next Friday, Jan. 24, is Sister Rose Marie Dwyer’s 80th birthday. Dr. Welsh is a CSJ Associate and a retired Topeka physician who comes to the Motherhouse on a regular basis for conversations with sisters about health questions, and Sister Rosie, as she’s known, is one of the women who often talks with her. So they decided they needed to celebrate their landmark birthdays together this year.

Sister Virginia Pearl led a simple prayer service to begin the celebration and then the birthdays girls and well-wishers joined in for snacks and beverages. The party was hosted by the Sisters of St. Joseph who live in rooms on the newly renovated fourth floor.
