MUENSTER —Sacred Heart Church in Muenster celebrated 175 years of vocations in their parish community last month. Three natives of Muenster were honored: Father Kyle Walterscheid (15 years); Sister Roberta Hesse, SSMN (65 years); Sister Francesca Walterscheid, SSMN (70 years). Also honored was the current pastor of Sacred Heart, Father Ken Robinson (25 years).

All of the honorees attended Sunday morning Mass June 4, followed by a celebration in the Sacred Heart Community Center. The local Knights of Columbus Council and Catholic Daughters of America Court jointly hosted the event attended by more than 400 people.  Each of the honorees was presented with a quilt made by the women of Sacred Heart Church.

The religious women currently live in Fort Worth at the Our Lady of Victory Center.
