Sister Kathleen Kaelin celebrates 60 years as an Ursuline Sister

Sister Kathleen Kaelin, a native of Louisville, is celebrating her 60th year of religious life as an Ursuline Sister of Mount Saint Joseph.

She was taught by Ursuline Sisters in grade school and at Mount Saint Joseph Academy. Her ministry has been committed to helping others uncover their own wholeness and holiness and radiate that in the world around them. Sister Kathleen earned a degree in English from Brescia College in 1965, and completed two master’s degrees, one in religious education from St. John’s College in Cleveland in 1975, and another in transpersonal psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, Palo Alto, Calif., in 1994.

She ministered in Maple Mount as a teacher at Mount Saint Joseph Academy (1973-79), as director of the temporary professed for the Ursuline Sisters (1979-86), and as associate director of the Mount Saint Joseph Retreat Center (1988-91). She ministered for the Diocese of Owensboro from 1983-89, first as co-director of the Office of Social Concerns, then as co-director of the Office of Worship and Spiritual Life. She served in the ministry formation program at Brescia College (1985-88), and also taught at St. Angela Merici School, Florissant, Mo., (1965-73).

Since 1994, Sister Kathleen has served as a therapist and spiritual guide in Louisville, for 10 years at the Center for Sacred Psychology and since 2012, as a spiritual guide and meditation teacher at the Passionist Earth & Spirit Center.
