"Catherine of Siena, as performed by Nancy Murray,OP, delighted our parishioners. Our Family Center was filled with people from several parishes in south central Michigan and all of them left so delighted by Sr. Nancy's portrayal of St. Catherine. We would highly recommend staging the event for people of all ages who want to be enthralled by a performance, engaged by a talented artist, transported to a different historical time, and inspired to learn more about the lives of our saints ! "
It was also a delight to meet and talk with Sr. Nancy, she has many new friends at St. Joseph's Shrine.

Sr Nancy draws audiences with her namesake, Murray;
“St Catherine-A Saint for Our Times” wins over their hearts!
In Feb ’07, Sr Nancy came to Charlotte, NC to help increase visibility & raise funds for Catholic radio in our Diocese. Though Catholics are small in number, her namesake, Bill Murray’s sister, caught the attention of the local major newspaper, The Charlotte Observer. Even though our Publicity Committee had done alot of work, we never expected the newspaper would pick up on the story. Advance coverage of the performance reached the whole city! The evening of the performance 600-700 people of all ages & denominations arrived.
Sr Nancy captivated the audience from the time she entered the room. Her one act performance held the attention of everyone, old & young. They fell head over heels in love with Sr Nancy, St Catherine & the show! Need to see our promotional materials or ask any questions, feel free to contact me. There is even a copy of the article published from the Charlotte Observer available. Don’t hesitate to book—TODAY! Sr Nancy is the greatest!

|St. Veronica's in Milwaukee Wisconsin - Tuesday, March 31, 2009|
Sr. Nancy Murray received a standing ovation from a sellout crowd at St. Veronica's. She was received with enthusiasm and appreciation for her performance of St. Catherine of Siena. We all felt like we were taken back in time and witnessing this great saint's life of humility, spirituality and, of course, her sense of humor. We were able to relate the trials she faced to those we face in today's society, knowing we too will get through the tough times with God's help and our determination to do His holy will.
Sr. Nancy drew in the audience, by walking among us and speaking to individuals as well as getting the children involved in a little song and dance. We were not only entertained in a very delightful way, but also given a spiritual uplifting.
Comments we heard were, "she was fantastik", "what a wonderful way to learn about the saints", "she made me feel good with her realness and wit", "this was great, when is she coming back?" One of the children's comments, "I really like her....she made me laugh".
Our pastor commented that this was the best way to end his week's retreat.
