‘Little Leprechauns’ Visit Nazareth

Posted by Kacie Emmerson

March 17, 2023

On March 16, 2023, the kindergarten students of St. Joseph Elementary School visited the Sisters at Nazareth for an early St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Decked out in green from head to toe, the little ones were excited to spread some Irish cheer.

The children sang some of their favorite St. Patrick’s Day songs, including “G-R-E-E-N” and “I’m a Little Leprechaun.” The Sisters beamed with joy as they listened to the sweet voices of the children. After the songs, the kids handed out cards and candy to the Sisters and spent some time sitting and talking with them.

Sister Frances Krumpleman took the opportunity to share some information about the church and its history with the students. She pointed out the beautiful stained-glass windows depicting various saints, including Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. The children were fascinated by the colors and details of the windows and listened attentively to Sister Frances’ stories.

As the visit came to a close, Sister Dorothy Wilson, who served as principal at St. Joe School in the early 1970s, posed for a photo with the students (see at top), along with Sister Evelyn Hurley, an educator herself for many years.

It was a day filled with green and good luck, and everyone left with a smile on their face and warmth in their heart.
