Academy Of The Visitation Nuns

Early in the year 1864, preliminary steps were taken towards the opening of a house of the Visitation Order in Maysville, Ky., a small town removal from Maysville to Rock Island, 111., it was plainly seen that the community would never succeed in a small town, where opportunities were so limited. Therefore, after careful deliberation, the matter was laid before the Right Rev. C. P. Maes, early in the year 1899, and he, after a thorough consideration of existing conditions, reluctantly admitted that there was no future for such an institution in Maysville, and approved of a removal to a more promising field. Shortly after this decision matters were expedited for the Sisters by an invitation from the Right Rev. (now Most Rev.) John Lancaster
