Our partnerships and face-to-face interactions are a vital part of our daily life. Also extremely important are the health and well-being of our visitors, staff, associates, and fellow sisters.

We are taking the following precautionary steps to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and influenza among our vulnerable sister population in the Covington Sisters of Notre Dame Provincial Center:

We are discouraging visits to the provincial center. Unfortunately, NO visitors will be permitted to enter Lourdes Hall Care Center, also known as the infirmary.

As of March 13, all events at the provincial center have been postponed indefinitely or canceled through April 5. This includes:
▪️ March 14 Associate Formation
▪️ March 20-22 Charis Young Adult Retreat
▪️ March 28 Province Day
▪️ March 29 JPIC Earth Day
▪️ April 3-5 Women's Weekend Retreat

If you have any questions, please contact us here, call the front desk at 859-291-2040, or email

This is a challenging time for everyone. We pray for unity, patience, and goodwill. We pray for the health of all individuals impacted by this coronavirus worldwide. We pray for our healthcare workers, leaders, individuals in quarantine, stranded travelers, and individuals and families coping with a new but hopefully temporary reality. 


The Women's Weekend Retreat is a joyful time of connecting with ourselves and other women through fellowship and a shared journey of faith. The Sisters of Notre Dame invite women of all ages to experience a weekend of prayer, reflection, and sharing that will deepen our faith and relationship with God.
