St. Joseph Children’s Home Honors the Ursulines of Louisville and Sister Loretta Guenther
Sister Loretta Guenther received not one, but two surprises, on Friday, June 2, 2023, when she toured the newly renovated west wing of the Landmark Building of St. Joseph Children’s Home, where she ministered for 36 years as a live-in house parent and was the last Ursuline Sister of Louisville to serve there. The first surprise was seeing a plaque in a hallway off the reception area dedicated to the Ursuline Sisters of Louisville with a quote by Sister Loretta on it. Surprise two came when she visited the chapel—it has been named in honor of Sister Loretta for her years of service at St. Joe’s!
Sisters Barbara Bir and Rita Dressman also were on the tour, along with Barbara Mercer and Kathy Williams, USAE employees and Associates. Grace Akers, Suzy Hillebrand and Caitlyn Green of St. Joseph’s gave a tour of the renovated building which included classrooms, the large quilt-making room and daycare facilities. We thank St. Joseph Children’s Home for honoring the Ursuline Sisters and Sister Loretta in such a beautiful way.
