author, educator, and past editor of
The Catholic Week, Anna Bailey Crow has compiled, with the help of the
Sisters of the Visitation, what certainly is one of the Archdiocese

Rather it is a heartwarming, historical collection about
a very special religious community of women who prayerfully adventured
to Mobile in December
of 1832 to become a significant part of our collective heart.
