206th Lincoln Birthday Dominican Connection

"All through life, be sure and put your feet in the right place, and then stand firm.”
~ Abraham Lincoln, March 1862

Sister Philip Neri Crawford, OP delivered the invocation at the re-dedication of the Third Street gateway entrance to Oak Ridge Cemetery on December 3, 2014. Two of our foundresses, Sister Josephine Meagher and Sr. Rachel Conway, were called upon to unveil the statue at Lincoln's Tomb on October 14, 1874. The gate has now been recreated to appear as it was during Lincoln's funeral procession. We are honored to be a part of this legacy.
