Joan Nuckols

Lynn Winsor

Two members of the Catholic Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVM) with ties to North Central Phoenix will celebrate their golden jubilees on July 30, with a liturgy and dinner at Mount Carmel, Dubuque, Iowa.

Sister Joan Nuckols, BVM, and Sister Lynn Winsor, BVM, both members of the Xavier College Preparatory administrative staff, are marking their golden jubilees, which signify 50 years of answering the call to live the mission of Jesus through core values of freedom, charity, education and justice. They entered the BVM congregation on July 31, 1967.

Nuckols currently serves as principal at Xavier, and Winsor is vice principal for Activities/Athletic Director. A celebration Mass and reception will be held for the two at Xavier College Preparatory in the Chapel of Our Lady on Oct. 21.
