50 Years and Onward: The Establishment of the Five American Provinces

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.
