Women & Spirit: Catholic Sisters in America – A Traveling Exhibit

November 12, 2010

In my preceding post, Archbishop Dolan referred to an exhibit currently at Ellis Island, Catholic Sisters in America. Well, Ellis Island is just one of many stops for this traveling exhibit now in its second of a four year tour.

“WOMEN & SPIRIT: Catholic Sisters in America” is a traveling exhibit sponsored by the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) in association with Cincinnati Museum Center. It reveals the mystery behind a small group of innovative American women who helped shape the nation’s social and cultural landscape.

Meet women who corresponded with President Thomas Jefferson, talked down bandits and roughnecks, lugged pianos into the wilderness, and provided the nation’s first health insurance to Midwestern loggers. Discover sisters’ courage during the Civil War, the Gold Rush, the San Francisco Earthquake, the Influenza Epidemic, the Civil Rights Movement, and Hurricane Katrina.

Welcome to Women & Spirit.
