In Honor of Archbishop Spalding
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.
