The Congregation of the Sisters of Nazareth is a congregation of Catholic religious women. Mother St Basil (Victoire Larmenier 1827-1878) founded the Sisters of Nazareth in London in the mid-nineteenth century. In Queensland they are based at Nazareth House in Wynnum North, where they provide residential care for the aged. They provided out-of-home care for children between 1926 and 1982.
