World Tourism Day

Published on

On this World Tourism Day, the archives show us that in 1959, traveling in Europe was a great adventure and required a great deal of preparation. From April to May 1959, a delegation of Grey Nuns traveled to Rome for the beatification ceremonies of Marguerite d’Youville. Not all the nuns were able to travel to Rome, so on her return, sister Anna Manseau put together a travel album, which she presented to the sisters in her community. Here are a few images from this precious document.
