This photo was taken on St. Joseph's Day during a reception at the Nazareth Convent, Sisters of St. Joseph, Concordia, Kansas. The group of young postulants are preparing to enter the chapel at the convent to celebrate accepting the habit of the Sisters of St. Joseph and becoming novitiates. A year later, again on St. Joseph's Day, they will celebrate their "first profession day" and take their vows. The girls on the steps in descending order are: Anna Herman, Julia Galen, Patricia McKenna, Marie Kelley; and Sisters Henrietta Bueche, Mildred Huber, Evangeline Thomas, Ovide Bertrand, Dympna Hamel, Elizabeth Belisle. Girls, left to right: Donna Rose Desilet, Connie Chaput, Ronalda Cote, Marcia Warthern, Anita Bissette.
