In Honor of Archbishop Spalding

September 9, 2011

On the death anniversary of Archbishop John Lancaster Spalding, August 25th, a number of the sisters gathered at his grave site to pray. It was a beautiful sunny day, and as we prayed the rosary, a gentle breeze wisped by.

Archbishop Spalding, the first bishop of Peoria, was instrumental in helping The Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis establish themselves as a community.

    Hi Sr. John Paul, it is nice to have the history on how orders got started. Ann C.
