Tour Historic Kneipp Springs

Our Lady, Mother of Mercy Center, 2730 E. Northport Rd. Rome City, IN
Saturday, September 24
Three tour options:          
12:30 p.m.
              2:00 p.m.
              3:30 p.m.
Space is limited & registration is required.
A $5 donation is requested at signup.
Don’t miss this chance to tour newly restored portions of historic Kneipp Springs! 
The tour will begin at the doctor’s house, then move on to the main buildings.  We will visit the chapel where Sister Mary Nuzeil saw visions of Mary, the Mother of Jesus.  The chapel contains a marble altar that was donated by Bing Crosby, whose wife, Dixie, spent time at the Kneipp Springs sanitarium.  Then we will continue on to the nuns’ living quarters, which are newly open for tours. 
If you were with us on the 2012 tour, this tour will be different!
Space is very limited, so register today at the LaGrange County Public Library! 
A $5 per person donation (cash or check) is needed at signup. 
(Checks should be made out to Our Lady, Mother of Mercy Center.) 
Parking will be in the large lot south of the main building.  You may enter by either drive, from Northport Road or State Road 9.
The Kneipp Springs Sanitarium was founded by Dr. W. G. Geierman in 1895.  The doctor was assisted by the Sisters of the Precious Blood, medically-trained nuns from Dayton, Ohio.  In 1902 the Sisters bought the property, and ran it until 1976.  At that time, the Sisters sold the property to The Way International, who used it as a Biblical research and training facility until 1998. 
Now called Our Lady, Mother of Mercy Center, the historic campus is home to a growing religious order, the Franciscans Brothers Minor.  The Franciscans use the property for their novitiate year of formation.  When you visit, don’t be surprised to see bearded, barefoot, brown-robed men roaming the property.
The Center is the only Canonically-approved apparition sight in United States.  Mary, the Mother of Jesus, appeared to Sister Mary Neuzil there five times, beginning in 1956. 
The Mother of Mercy Foundation is restoring the historic property in hopes that it will be utilized as a retreat facility, with a contemporary conference center.
