Little Sisters insignia, St. Joseph Catholic Church

An addendum from our July Static article on the departing Little Sisters of Jesus (Nome’s beloved community of Catholic women): the Little Sisters have now moved away from Nome, but not before a gesture of gratitude from our local Rotary Club, who recently named them Nome Citizens of the Year.

Congratulations to the Little Sisters! Although we already miss their presence in rural Alaska, we’re keeping them in our regular thoughts and prayers, with gratitude for the many ways they lifted up our communities for so many years. To learn more about the Little Sisters, listen to our Profile and Story49 programs on their religious order.

    How I wish nuns wore the habit and veil as they were wedded to Christ on the day they took their vows.
