Sister Josephine Therese Uhll, OP looks through the Ministries of the Sisters photo albums with Sister Concepta Joerger, OP and finds her photo that was taken when she wrote the history of Dominican Sisters at the St. Dominic-Jackson Memorial Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi. Sister Linda Tonellato, OP, curator of the Heritage Room, helped find the photo in the album.
In the Heritage Room one of the displays is a series of photo binders made to commemorate the 125th Anniversary of the Congregation in 1998. Inside the binders is a photo of each Sister in their respective ministry. The photos were taken the late 1990’s. The binders were originally assembled to be displayed at the Jubilee Homecoming that year with the photos of the Jubilarians. Today the four photo albums are divided by the years the Sisters were professed exhibiting nearly 80 years of service. The Ministries of the Sisters photo albums 1920-1948, 1949-1954, 1955-1963 and 1964-1997 are currently on display in the Heritage Room inside Dominican Sisters of Springfield, IL Sacred Heart Convent.
