March 8, 2024, Sebring, Florida – After portraying Dominican mystic and reformer St. Catherine of Siena to about 875 communities throughout the world, Sister Nancy Murray, OP, portrayed the saint in a unique and vibrant way to parishioners of St. Catherine of Siena Parish in Sebring, Florida, as they marked its 100th anniversary. 

Drawing on about four hours’ worth of stories that she’s gleaned from her portrayals of St. Catherine of Siena since 2002, Sister Nancy tailors her message to her audience, focusing in this performance on St. Catherine’s family life as one of 22 children and her subsequent life as a lay Dominican woman.
