We are a very busy group of nuns and enjoy our time serving the community. This is reflected in our fun filled schedule! During our time as a House we’ve also developed some yearly traditions, such as our annual Pub Crawl each Easter, as well as attending and hosting annual events in Louisville.

If you’d like some Sisters to show up to your event, or you’d like to partner with our organization send details to events@derbycitysisters.org!

A sampling of the many organizations we’ve worked with includes:

Louisville Youth Group, The University of Louisville LGBT Center, Apron, Inc. MAP Louisville, Mr. Friendly, Kentuckiana Pride Foundation, The Arrow Fund, Transwomen National, The Fairness Campaign, The Center for Women And Families, The Department of Veterans Affairs LGBT Outreach, Friends of Eastern Cemetery, My Dog Eats First, The Shamrock Foundation, AIDS Interfaith Ministries, House of Ruth, Kentuckiana AIDS Alliance / Louisville AIDS Walk, Beyond These Walls A Holiday for Everyone, Fair Event Vendors Alliance, Volunteers of America, The Derby City Bears, The Kentucky Bourbon Bears, TriState Leather/Boy/Pup, The Columbus Sisters Abbey of the Cardinal Sins (Benefit for Kaleidoscope Youth Center), Indiana University Southeast GSA, Metropolitan Community Church Louisville, The Elier Vela Foundation, Heart of Chance Toy Chest, and others.
