As part of our Bicentennial Celebration, we invite you to a dedication ceremony honoring those enslaved at Nazareth from 1818 to 1865. A monument will be dedicated on Saturday, July 14, 2012, at 10 a.m. in the Nazareth Cemetery. The monument was designed with a bronze plaque created by the renowned sculptor, Ed Hamilton of Ed Hamilton Studio, Inc. A poster exhibit of Ed Hamilton’s works will be displayed in the O’Connell Hall Drawing Room. A reception will also be held in the Drawing Room after the dedication. (Mass in St. Vincent Church will be celebrated at 8:30 a.m. that day.)
We are inviting the great great grandchildren of those who were enslaved to join us for the dedication of the monument to be placed in our cemetery. To read the story of the men and women whose labor helped Nazareth to flourish and to view photos, click here.
