The Daughters of Charity are famous for their work in education, healthcare, and in the orphanages. This exhibit, however, seeks to display some of the artistic talents of the Daughters within the Province of St. Louise. Each of these works, from the collections of the Archives of the Province, was created by a Daughter, and covers a variety of religious, Vincentian, and secular subjects.
The Daughters are known for their work in health care. This exhibit follows the start of their health ministry, expansion across the country, unique health care works, and evolution into the modern age.
In 1969, the General Council of the Daughters of Charity in Paris, noting the increase in sisters and ministries, made the decision to divide the two American provinces into five. This decision guided the future of the Daughters in the United States for the next 50 years. This exhibit commemorates the establishment of the five provinces and highlights the ceremony overseen by Mother Superioress Chiron, the beginning of the five provinces, and its effects on the sisters in those provinces.
