TELL CITY – Nativity Circle 710 Daughters of Isabella will hold an open meeting at 6:30 p.m. March 6 in the St. Paul Catholic Church Parish Hall in Tell City. The group invites any area Catholic women who may be interested in joining.
The Daughters of Isabella was organized May 14, 1897. Nativity Circle 710 was chartered in 1944. The group will celebrate their 68th year in December.
The namesake of the organization, Queen Isabella of Portugal, was instrumental in bringing unity to the Catholic Church and peace and harmony to her country. Because of her deep belief in God, she provided the necessary aid to Christopher Columbus for him to set sail in 1492.
Following his arrival in America, she sent him back on several voyages to spread the gospel. It was in Queen Isabella’s name that the Catholic faith was brought to America via Christopher Columbus.
Being a member of the Daughters of Isabella means having a soaring spirit of faith, hope and love of God and a commitment to the country and its people. Members gather each month to determine ways to give of their time in works of charity and spirituality.
Any interested Catholic women are invited to attend the open meeting and encouraged to join the group. A dinner meal will be served before the meeting
