Thank you Fr. Martin for the link.  My wife and I plan to go to the exhibit in the next month.  We both owe so much to the nuns that taught us.
 
By the way I was at the USF exhibit today on Galleons and Globalization that was recommended on this site a couple months ago and enjoyed it very much.

Fr. Martin,

The Women and Spirit Exhibition has been travelling around the country all year.  Ellis Island is its last stop.  When the time for the exhibit ends at Ellis Island, it will be dismantled, and all of the pieces, the treasures really, from the various women's congregations will be returned to them.

Thank you for the report; I went to it twice when it was here in DC at the Smithsonian early last Spring.  It was wonderfully upliftling and deeply moving.
