Holy Name School Students Visit the Mount April 19, 2016

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.

    Sister Amelia,
    Thank you so much for showing these young kids the beauty of our home and how to have fun along the way!

    I too enjoy seeing the photos of our old campus, not having visited since the late 1960s. I also try to look for familiar names and faces among the Sisters and as well some of the buildings and landmarks that have stayed the same over the years, and others that I don’t recognize especially the Retreat Center. Is that Center front what used to be part of the old dorms I wonder?
