The history of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and those from Emmitsburg in Vincennes, Indiana, is described. The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth opened a school for girls there in 1813. They eventually had problems staffing it, and the Sisters of Charity from Emmitsburg were asked to help, which they did from about 1838 to 1843. Details about the proposed union between the Nazareth and Emmitsburg communities and the persistent staffing problems for the school are given. Simon Gabriel Brute became the bishop of Vincennes in 1834 and played a major role in bringing the Emmitsburg sisters to the school.
