Sisters of Charity of Nazareth

Betsey Wells and Teresa Carrico arrived on Dec. 1, 1812, to begin the foundation of what became the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in frontier Kentucky. They were joined by Catherine Spalding on Jan. 21, 1813, and Mary Beaven, Harriet Gardiner, and Sarah Sims in April and May of 1813. Together these six women sought to build community and meet the needs of their time.
