New Video! – Dominican Sisters' Invocation at Oak Ridge Cemetery Gate for 2015 Lincoln Funeral Re-enactment

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.

  1. Dear Sistre Philip Neri,

    Thank you so much and may our dear Lord bestow an abundance of blessings on you my dear friend, for not only providing a very moving invocation for our gateway dedication, but for your friendship over many, many years. You and many, many kind Dominican Sisters have been an inspiration to me by your example of kindness and humility that all of us should emulate.

    Thank you again Sister for your kind words and friendship.
