Second-grade students from Holy Name School in Henderson, Ky., came to Maple Mount on April 19, 2016, to learn about nature and the spirit and history of the Ursuline Sisters Motherhouse. Ursuline Sister Laurita Spalding is a second-grade teacher at the school.
Sister Amelia Stenger led the children, who are preparing to make their First Communion, on tours of the grounds, including stops at the community’s oldest tree, the Our Lady of Prompt Succor statue and the farm, where they visited with the cows. She talked to them about being good stewards of the land.
Here are some pictures from the day.
