As part of the Congregation’s bicentennial celebration, students from Bethlehem High School in Bardstown, Ky., visited Nazareth Campus today. When the Congregation celebrated its 100th Anniversary, students from the SCN founded high school came out to campus by train and visited the graves of the school’s founders, placing flowers on each grave site. Today, the students recreated that moment for the 200th anniversary albeit by school bus. Dozens of students visited each grave of the Sisters who had played a pivotal role at the school, gingerly laying down flowers. The students also met the spirit of Mother Catherine, played by Sister Rita Davis and spoke with renowned Pittsburgh artist Bob Connell. Bob shared insights with the students about his paintings and also displayed a number of items from French and Indian fur traders.  Bethlehem was founded by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in 1819.
