On May 18, the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth attended the second annual Humankindness Gala in Lexington, Kentucky. Hosted by the CHI Saint Joseph Health, this event celebrated the profound impact of the arts in healing and honored 35 exceptional physicians, employees, and advanced practitioners from various communities served by CHI Saint Joseph Health.

The Humankindness Gala serves as a fundraiser, supporting patients and families in local communities. Proceeds from the event fund programs like employee financial assistance and patient and family support, making a difference in the lives of those served by CHI Saint Joseph Health.

The rich history between the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and CHI dates back to 1877 when the Sisters established the Saint Joseph Infirmary in Lexington, which later became Saint Joseph Hospital. This foundation of service and dedication laid the groundwork for today’s CHI Saint Joseph Health. Guided by a mission and faith-based heritage, CHI Saint Joseph Health is committed to building healthier communities across the Commonwealth through integrated physical and behavioral health care.

In attendance were Sister Jackulin Jesu, President of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, Sister Amrita Manjaly, Vice President of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, and Sister Adeline Fehribach, who sits on the board of directors for CHI Saint Joseph Health. The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth were also sponsors of the event, which highlighted the importance of the arts in healing and supporting local communities. The 2024 Humankindness Gala underscored the commitment of CHI Saint Joseph Health to enhance patient care through community-focused initiatives.
