The Provincial Archives has been assisting our colleagues at Seton Shrine as they prepare new exhibits for the upcoming commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the canonization of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. One of the collaborations involved the archivists from the other eleven congregations of the Sisters of Charity Federation. Each sent in an image of their First Mother, and exhibit curator Ruth Bielobocky designed this wonderful panel that traces that history. The panels were installed today along with other images and artifacts. Ruth stands near her work along with Tony DiIulio of Seton Heritage Ministries who has been coordinating the exhibit changes. Check for our posts next week as we document the installation of the crowning item in the new exhibit: the original banner for St. Elizabeth Ann Seton that hung in Vatican Square at the canonization on Sept. 14, 1975.
