Wednesday was a busy morning at Nazareth Motherhouse Campus as two groups were welcomed into the church to learn more about the Congregation’s history.
Sister Frances Krumpelman and Sister Rita Davis hosted middle school students from St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic School of Louisville, Kentucky, for a special talk, during which Sister Frances spoke about how the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth came to be and their connection to St. Gabriel Catholic School.
“St. Gabriel’s has a special relationship with our Community. When the parish was founded and the school was open, they needed some Sisters to teach. They asked us, the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, to come and teach. We taught there for many years,” Sister Frances told the students. Sister Mary Margaret Reid was one of the last Sisters of Charity of Nazareth to teach at the Louisville school, along with Sister Ethel Durbin.
Following the talk, the students took a few moments to explore the church and parts of campus. Sister Frances’ talk can be viewed here.
Later in the morning, a second group, the Catholic Women of St. James, also visited. The Women’s Bible Study group based in Elizabethtown watched a virtual tour of the church and stayed for Mass.
