DUBUQUE — Choosing the theme, “We are Called to be Companions on the Journey,” three Dubuque Presentation Sisters, formerly teachers in the Archdiocese of Dubuque, celebrated their 60-year jubilee. Sisters Kay Cota, Janice Hancock and Jeanette McCarthy observed 60 years of religious life on April 19, in Sacred Heart Chapel, Presentation Sisters Mount Loretto. The celebration began with a liturgy of the Eucharist and was followed by brunch with the Presentation community. In the evening the jubilarians gathered again with the community for an evening meal and sharing of video memories.
The three jubilarians entered the Presentation congregation in 1957 and professed final vows in 1965. Currently, all three sisters reside in Dubuque and minister in community prayer and service.
