The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth were committed to rescuing and educating the many orphans of Kentucky. “The next year, [1832] when cholera struck the city, [Louisville, KY] the Sisters volunteered to nurse the sick poor and gathered orphans into their own small house behind the church. Twenty-five children moved from there to the house that Catherine and the women of Louisville raised money to build. Within three years, river boats and urban disease had brought enough orphans to require purchase of a large building, the St. Vincent Orphanage that lasted Catherine’s lifetime.”
