Join us for New Frontiers: The Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

After a brief summary of BVM history, Dr. Ann Harrington, BVM, professor emerita of history at Loyola and author of Expanding Horizons: Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 1919-1943, will discuss the orders connection with the Jesuits, the city of Chicago, Mundelein College, and Loyola University.
