On Saturday, December 3, the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth celebrated the bicentennial of the Congregation with an Opening Ritual.  Sisters, Associates, collaborators and all the SCN Family gathered from across the world, some via technology, to celebrate. View the whole archived video here.

As the third Congregation of women religious founded in the United States, SCNs celebrate with gratitude, giving honor to a strong heritage of fidelity and service. Rooted in Nelson County, Ky., SCN ministries now embrace the world. Today, there are Sisters and Associates in the U.S., Belize, Botswana, Africa, Nepal, and across India.

Throughout the world, SCN family members are involved in diverse ministries, meeting needs in health care, education, social services and pastoral ministries. Just as Mother Catherine Spalding, the SCN foundress, has been recognized for visionary leadership, Sisters approach ministries today with that same mindset, with an eye on the needs of the times and the needs of the future.
