Overview
The story of the Sisters of St. Walburg Monastery began with five Benedictine sisters arriving in Covington in 1859 to teach English to German immigrants. These five sisters were the beginning of a Roman Catholic religious community that, over the course of 150 years, established schools, hospitals, a college, and a nursing home. The sisters follow the ancient Rule of St. Benedict and served graciously, creating and staffing these facilities for decades. Images of America: The Benedictine Sisters of St. Walburg Monastery presents a pictorial history of the community in Covington and Villa Hills, the schools and hospitals where the sisters worked, and the familiar faces of those who were a part of it all. Following the Benedictine tradition of prayer, community, and service, the Sisters of St. Walburg Monastery have contributed to the welfare of the people of northern Kentucky and beyond.
