Glenmary Home Missioners Founded

Father William Bishop, a priest in the Archdiocese of Baltimore, founds the Glenmary Home Missioners and is invited by Archbishop McNicholas to establish the headquarters in Cincinnati. The mission of the Glenmary priests and brothers is to serve in rural areas without a resident priest and address the spiritual and material needs of the poor. Father Bishop also founded the Glenmary Sisters in 1941. The sisters moved their headquarters to Owensboro, Kentucky, in the 1990s.
