  • SC Nazareth Writing Desk 1.jpeg

    Mother Catherine Spalding, a founding leader of the new religious community in the new Catholic diocese of Kentucky, used this writing desk, ca. 1840-1860.
    Her peers so respected her that Sister Catherine was consistently reelected to six-year terms, despite giving Fr. David and Bishop Flaget “convincing reasons” why she should not retain leadership for life. Other Sisters collaborated with her Council, however, and numerous clergy and lay persons worked to establish the three main ministries that Kentuckians lacked.
    The desk is displayed in Heritage Hall, O'Connell Hall, on the campus at Nazareth, Kentucky.

The building housed St. Vincent's Free School from 1876-1911, primarily funded through a legacy from a former pupil of the Academy of Mount Saint Vincent, also on the Bronx campus. After this time, building was used by the College of Mount Saint Vincent as an auditorium and library, and also Elizabeth Seton School.
