Crucifixes & rosaries

One says, “This crucifix was carefully kept with envelopes and packets containing what may be first class relics of Mother Theodore. It is probable that is associated in some way with Mother Theodore.”

The Seven Dolor Beads were given by Mother Theodore to Eugenia Doyle’s mother. They were returned to St. Mary’s after the death of the latter.

Lizzie Weisert’s sketchbook

“This album was brought to St. Rose among the souvenirs for our local centenary last October. It was brought by Miss Clementine Weisert, sister of Lizzie Weisert to whom the book belonged. We feel that it will be welcome at St. Mary’s because it was sketched there and because it represents scenes there.” -Undated note from Saint Rose Academy, Vincennes, Indiana
