St. Joseph sister celebrates 50 years of religious life

Sister Karen Van De Walle recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of her entrance into the Congregation of St. Joseph, based in Tipton, Ind., in the Lafayette Diocese.

In addition to teaching art at Catholic schools in the Lafayette Diocese, Sister Karen has taught at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in St. Mary-of-the-Woods and Cathedral High School in Indianapolis.

Since 1981, Sister Karen has blended her love of pottery with spiritual direction at The Potter’s House, a studio she maintains in Indianapolis, where she meets people from all over the world who share her passion for the spirituality of art. †
