 Help the Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph celebrate their Centennial year at the 42nd annual Mount Saint Joseph Barbecue Picnic on Sunday, Sept. 9 at the park in Maple Mount (located 12 miles west of Owensboro, Ky., on Hwy. 56). 

Booths open at 10:30 a.m, then lunch will be ready just an hour later.  Award-winning barbecue chicken, mutton and pork is served from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The barbecue is served with side items. Burgoo, sandwiches and other snack foods such as hot dogs and funnel cakes are also available.

And, as with each and every Mount Saint Joseph Picnic, there are going to be some exciting raffles.  Grand raffle tickets are $2 each and could pay off big time. Grand raffle prizes are $3,000; a week’s stay for six people in Pensacola, Fla. (includes a travel stipend); $1,000; $500; a quilt handmade by the sisters; a set of Lenox china (Orleans pattern), and a 32″ Haier LCD HDTV. The raffle drawing takes place when the picnic ends at 3 p.m. You do NOT have to be present to win.  You just need to have purchased a ticket.  :)

There will also be a silent auction booth that offers a wide variety of nice items up for bid. The popular yard sale and holiday decor booths return as well.  Several other booths will feature one-of-a-kind handmade crafts by Ursuline Sisters and friends; a cake wheel, a fruit wheel, ice cream, bingo, pull tabs, plants and more. 

Children are going to love the picnic too with an inflatable slide, face painting, a fish pond, adopt-a-pet (stuffed animals), and other treats and games.

All picnic proceeds benefit the retired Ursuline Sisters. To volunteer, contact Marian Bennett at 270-229-2006 or email To order raffle tickets, contact Dan Heckel at 270-229-4103 ext. 279 or email
