Sister Helena Finck’s history

by Feb 4, 2021Blog, Our Stories2 comments

Many universities participated some years ago in a mass digitization of books out of copyright by Google. Catholic University was one of the universities, and they had Sister Helena Finck’s history digitized.

On a computer, if you click on the down arrow next to the gear symbol near the top right of page, you can download an epub or a pdf, or both. Enjoy it!

    So cool! Sr. Helena’s work still provides many details of our early history, such as the exact date when the Sisters arrived in San Antonio in 1869 with a letter from Bishop Dubuis appointing Sr. Madeleine Cholette as the superior. Of course as we know, they had to seek hospitality from the Ursuline nuns for several months since the original building intended to be their convent/ infirmary had burned down before they left Galveston.

      Sr. Shirley, thanks for this comment! The digitization of the book will be a way to bring our History closer to everyone. Blessings!
