Travel Journal
  • Our very first Motherhouse Road Trip!
  • We drive west across Ohio and Indiana on I-80. Lots of trees, grain fields, and even an occasional goat pasture! Then into Illinois—from miles away we can see the Chicago skyline.
  • Our podcast guests, Sister Michele and Sister Michael Marie, rocked the Ask Sister podcast! Their sisters in the audience encouraged them with smiles and applause.
  • Other stops on the trip: the annual J.S. Paluch Vocation Seminar, an incredible gathering of many different organizations and individuals who work on behalf of vocations.

About the Congregation

Mission Statement: We, the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, are called to extend the kingdom of God’s Love among ourselves and others by living the spirit of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, whose lives were centered in the love of God and one another. We witness to this love through dedicated service to the Church, especially in ministry to the family.
