Loretto Motherhouse Crèches from Around the World

Posted on December 19, 2018, by Loretto Community

This Yuletide season nativity scenes of all shapes and sizes grace the halls, windowsills and outdoors at Loretto Motherhouse in Nerinx, Ky. They are a sight to behold! Most of the crèche collection featured there belongs to Anthony Mary Sartorius SL. Some years ago she began the lovely tradition of decking out the Motherhouse with her beautiful nativity scenes, and she continues it to this day. The crèches represent many cultures and countries from around the world. Highlighted below are some of the scores of nativity scenes at the Motherhouse. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
