Give Inspiration This Lent

As we enter the season of Lent, a time of reflection and giving, we invite you to join the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in supporting the “Inspiration Center.”

International volunteers go forth

During the Liturgy held at St. Vincent de Paul church, nine lay mission volunteers were commissioned for their upcoming service trips both to Belize and Botswana. Sister Evelyn Hurley graced the commissioning service handing candles to the volunteers.

The Belize immersion trip includes several participants from St. Thomas Parish in Bardstown, Kentucky. They will eventually be joined by four members of the Gaston family of Leonardtown, Maryland. Together, they will build a house in memory of Christin Gaston. Christin was an incredible first-grade teacher at Fr. Andrew White School in Leonardtown. She passed away unexpectedly in 2017. The students, faculty, and staff at Fr. Andrew White funded this House Build.

Also present was Tootsie Gish, SCNA, and Katie Whitehurst. They will be volunteering with Sisters in Botswana for several weeks.
