Thank you! This is so interesting!
Thank you, Sister! Of course this is a brief look at just a few of the works of the early Daughters in the U.S., based on the one Vincentian Heritage Journal article which focused on Chicago and St. Louis. Future presentations could cover what was happening in Emmitsburg, Philadelphia, the Northeast, eventually the Southern and Western states… the Civil War… so much history.
This is good. Where is part 1? Is that the story of CMs early days in USA?
Yes- if you notice there’s a link just below the presentation. I can make it more prominent 🙂
