Floating Nuns

Five Ursuline sisters,

Five Ursuline sisters, wearing 19th-century-style habits, made a five-day float trip down the Ohio River from Louisville to Owensboro, Kentucky, in mid-August to re-enact the 1874 journey of their founders. Amelia Stenger, OSU, contacted organizers of the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Expedition for help in locating a flatboat, according to The (Louisville) Courier-Journal. The sisters are raising funds to support Ursuline missions, including TASSC International, Ursuline Sister Dianna Ortiz’s ministry to torture victims.
