Bus Trip to Cleveland

On Friday we visited the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage outside of Cleveland. It is sponsoring the traveling exhibit "Women & Spirit" a history of Catholic sisters in the USA. Go figure!

It is a beautiful exhibit, one of a couple that are presently touring the country. The LCWR procured a number of grants to assemble such a huge and comprehensive display of the vast effects thousands of religious sisters have had on education, health care and social services over the last 200 years in this country.

Some of the next stops include:
Statue of Liberty National Monument/Ellis Island Immigration Museum
New York City
September 2010-January 2011

Mississippi River Museum
Dubuque, Iowa
February-April 2011

Center for History
South Bend, Indiana
September-December 2011

Also this weekend you'll find a column by our Mary Lou Kownacki here in our Erie Times News Saturday Faith section.
