Sisters welcome Santa — and you! — to Christmas Open House Dec. 11

November 25, 2016 by

Santa Claus has planned a visit to the Nazareth Motherhouse, and word has it that he’s bringing cookies and milk!

Children — as well as any grownups they want to bring along — are invited to come meet him Sunday, Dec. 11, from 1 to 3 p.m., at the Sisters of St. Joseph Christmas Open House.

While the kids are spending time with the Jolly Old Elf eating cookies and coloring, the grownups can take part in guided tours of the 114-year-old landmark Motherhouse, which will be decorated for the season.

Construction on the five-story limestone and brick building began in 1902 and was completed just 13 months later. The structure, which continues to serve as the spiritual home of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.

During the Open House, parents and grandparents will also have the opportunity to take pictures of their children with Santa, and to visit with the sisters who are hosting the event.

Parking is available in the east lot, between the Motherhouse and t he Community Garden of Hope, for easy access to the Auditorium.
