In 2020 as we celebrated the 175th anniversary of our founding, we are struck by the need to remember the past in order to envision our evolving future. We felt that our history, Building Sisterhood, is a good resource to do this. A few of us offered to see what we could do to bring forward some of the key chapters of that history and invite some reflection. Although this is of particular interest to IHM Sisters and Associates, we would like to extend an invitation to you to accompany us on this journey.
IHM Associate Margaret Susan Thompson, associate professor of history and political science at Syracuse University, offers a brief introduction to some significant chapters of Building Sisterhood.
