SAVE the MOTHER HOUSE and  House and Chapel at; Nazareth, MI, 49074 lies within Kalamazoo limits, and retains its own zip code.

The Catholic nuns and the “Mother Home” have been a HUGE part of KALAMAZOOS HISTORY since 1897 when Nazareth Academy opened.1902 Barbour Hull was built to serve as a boys' (military) school'. In 1913 Nazareth College opened. By the 1960s, over 1000 nuns “Served” more than 30 communities in Michigan. Today the Mother House is still located within the boundaries of the Sisters of Saint Joseph's Nazareth complex. Its exterior has served as the backdrop for THOUSANDS of area runners at the starting line of the Kalamazoo Marathon. Its interior is stunning from the Holy Family Chapel, to the Holy Stairs, ascending behind the chapel.” Demolition" of the historic mother house and chapel is set for april. I am Petitioning to make this place a historical land mark to stop demolition.
