Sister History

I love history. Studied history in college (as my minor). Grew up going to the Smithsonian on a regular basis, and volunteered there in high school. I even toyed with the idea of working at Willimasburg or becoming a National Park Ranger so I could work at historical monuments.

So you can imagine how excited I was when I heard about this travelling exhibit! Women & Spirit: Catholic Sisters in America opens May 16th at the Cincinnati Museum Center. It moves to Dallas in September and then the Smithsonian in January. I hope it travels somewhere close to where I am at some point!

PS - the Sister in the picture is Sr. Annmarie Sanders, IHM. I met her when I was visiting our Congregation Leaders in Washington, D.C. a few years ago. She's the Communications Director for the Leadership Conference of Women Religious and is one of those really nice people!

that looks interesting, and be sure to let us know if it comes to the Northwest.

We are volunteers in the National Park so we get a taste of what being a park ranger is--but get to go home afterwards.
