Tuesday, February 10, 2015

The best treat in visiting the Old Ursuline Convent Museum was entering Saint Mary's Catholic Church there, built in 1845.  Just beautiful:

Saint Lucy! I'm Jewish and can't readily identify too many of the Saints, but Saint Lucy I will never forget, as this was one of the favorite items at the St. Joseph's Day altar at St. Cletus in Gretna (loooove visiting St. Joseph Day altars!!):
