Women’s History Month: Mother Theodore and the Sisters of Charity

When Mother Theodore Guerin and her sister-companions reached Frederick, Md., they were offered hospitality by the Sisters of Charity. This is what Mother Theodore shares about the Sisters of Charity and their educational ministry:

“They teach the various sciences scarcely known in our French schools, but they excel in music, which is an indispensable thing in this country, even for the poor. No piano, no pupils! Such is the spirit of this country — Music and Steam!”
