Dominican Sisters of Springfield, IL Celebrate Community’s 140th Anniversary
140 years ago today on August 19, 1873 the foundresses of Dominican Sisters of Springfield, IL arrived in Jacksonville, Illinois. Their pilgrimage started at St. Catharine of Sienna Convent near Springfield, KY & took them to Jacksonville, IL. They traveled on a horse driven stage coach and then by train to begin the Dominican mission of teaching and community life at Our Savior parish and St. Patrick School.
Sisters enjoy the 140th Anniversary cake and after dinner treats made by Brandon while they view the centerpiece and hallway display.
