Advent Mass live from Nazareth

Update: A shelter for Sisters

“We wanted to send this special message of gratitude for your support of the building of our new convent in Kallanode and give you an update on the progress. The last time we sent an update, construction was at a standstill due to the lockdown in India. We are happy to report that the construction work of the convent building resumed again.”

Thank you for making Join the Journey a success!

Thank you to all who attended the virtual Join the Journey program, in support of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. Though we weren’t able to gather in-person, the feeling of support across our world was palpable as people joined from across the U.S., India, Nepal, Belize, and Botswana – a true experience of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth family!

Sister Florina’s vocation video

“I am so thankful to each of you who has been part of my life’s journey. Your prayers are my support system and your blessings, my stronghold. The joy of belonging to God and spending a life surrendered to do His will is worth a thousand elsewhere. I hope you may feel God’s presence in your life as you watch it.”

Speaking out for all

Impelled by the love of Christ, Sister Julie Driscoll is a pioneer, willing to take risks and reach out often when others do not. Her passion for helping those most in need is well known in Kentucky and beyond.

They risk their lives and resources, both personally and corporately, as they engage in diverse ministries in carrying out this mission.
