Passionist Nuns ~ 65 Years in Kentucky ~ Thank God!

This month of October brings us 65 years of loving and prayerful presence in the Diocese of Owensboro, Kentucky, USA! Won’t you join us in thanking and praising God for bringing our 5 Mother Foundresses to the “South” those many years ago.  They have all gone to their eternal reward and have left us virtuous examples to follow as we seek to faithfully continue the charism they began on Kentucky soil. God-willing, throughout this month I will bring you snippets of the history of our foundation.

This Friday, October 7th – Feast of the Holy Rosary – is the day we keep as our “Foundation Day”. It was the day Mass was first offered in the little old “mansion” on Wing Avenue in Owensboro.  This Wednesday (tomorrow) we will keep as a Gaudeamus Day to celebrate this special occasion.

So be on the look-out for some neat photos, inspiring history and reflections. And please do keep us in prayer – that we may remain faithful to this awesome gift God has given us – to be called to be a Passionist Nun in the 21st century.

Deo Gratias!  St. Paul of the Cross, Venerable Mother Mary Crucified and our Mother Foundresses, ora pro nobis!

One thought on “Passionist Nuns ~ 65 Years in Kentucky ~ Thank God!

  1. Let us give thanks to Almighty God for calling these holy women to himself through a life of prayer, love and solitude. I cannot imagine a world without religious who storm the gates of heaven with prayers on behalf of the rest of us.
