TWO RIVERS -- Seven-year-old Christopher sits in his wheelchair, affectionately touching Sr. Irmina Bula as she eats lunch. She responds by nuzzling him and encouraging him with a big smile and lots of love and patience as he "jabbers."

Sr. Irmina, who for 66 years has been a Sister of St. Joseph of the Third Order of St. Francis of Stevens Point, is one of Christopher's two mother figures. The other is Sr. Edmund Antoniewicz, a 50-year member of the same order, and one of the 44 sisters to be honored at the Diocesan Sisters Jubilee Celebration at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 6, at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral, Green Bay.   Full story ...
