TERRE HAUTE, Ind. A congregation of Catholic nuns in western Indiana has honored a former county parks superintendent for his work building a log cabin similar to one once used the congregation's founder.

Four dogwood trees were dedicated Friday by the Sisters of Providence along with a plaque honoring W. Keith Ruble, the former Vigo County superintendent for parks and recreation.

The Tribune-Star reports Ruble was honored by the congregation at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods near Terre Haute for his work building a log cabin chapel near the site of a similar cabin once used by the congregation's founder, Mother Theodore Guerin.

Guerin was named a saint by Pope Benedict XVI in 2006.

Sister Denise Wilkinson of the Sisters-of-Providence thanked Ruble for the cabin and his work for the congregation.
