In 1976, Bishop Glennon P. Flavin, assisted
by Father Leonard Kalin, sent young women to
Pennsylvania who became the first School Sisters
of Christ the King. The Community has since
passed several milestones: the Motherhouse
construction in 1992; Immaculate Heart of Mary
Sisters return to Philadelphia and the
appointment of Mother Joan Paul, Superior
General, in 1994; the Founder, Bishop Flavin's,
death in 1995; approval of the Constitutions in
1996; and the first General Chapter in 2001.
Currently, the Sisters administer and teach in
Lincoln, Crete, and Seward. The key elements of
the Sisters' spirituality are belonging totally
to the King, love for the Eucharist and the
priesthood, zeal for souls, and devotion to Mary
in the spirit of St. Alphonsus Liguori.
As daughters of the Church we have Catholic Education
as our specific mission. We strive to extend the Kingdom
of Christ by laboring with zeal in Catholic Schools and
other Religious Programs.
Currently the Sisters serve in six parish schools in our Diocese of Lincoln.
- Saint Joseph School, Lincoln
- Saint Teresa School, Lincoln
- Saint Peter School, Lincoln
- Saint James School, Crete
- Saint Vincent de Paul School, Seward
- Saint Joseph School, Beatrice
- UNL Newman Center, Lincoln
The Sisters also assist as Sacramental Coordinator and other
various ways at:
- St. Michael School, Cheney
- Sacred Heart School, Lincoln
We are also serving in Saint James Parish in Saint Joseph Missouri,
while attending Benedictine College in Kansas.
Our Sisters are also enrolled in the Remick Leadership Program for
Catholic School Principals at the University of Notre Dame’s Alliance
for Catholic Education.
