Sisters from Tipton Find Home in Nazareth Center
Several sisters from the Congregation of St. Joseph in Tipton, IN. recently relocated from St. Joseph Center in Tipton, to live with sisters from the Congregation of St. Joseph at our Nazareth Center in Kalamazoo, MI.

On Wednesday, November 21, some of these sisters presented the sisters at Nazareth with a figure of the Risen Christ which had been in the entrance way of the Tipton Center as a sign of welcome to all. This loving and familiar reminder of their Center has now found a home in the Dining Room at Nazareth, and will continue to be a sign of welcome and hospitality to all who come to visit or share a meal.

In addition, several sisters also planted jonquil bulbs which they had received from the Congregational Leadership Team, and added holy ground from their beloved Tipton home, to the holy ground at Nazareth. They asked that God bless the bulbs and the soil as a reminder that we are all one with each other, with creation and with our God.
