Celebrating Sisters in Higher Education
October 18 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
In partnership with the Loretto Sisters and the Sisters of St. Joseph, join us for a conversation on Catholic Culture in Canada & Women Religious in Canadian Higher Education, with historians Dr. Mark McGowan and Dr. Elizabeth Smyth.
It was women’s religious communities that opened the college doors for female students more than 100 years ago, with the arrival of the Loretto Sisters and the Sisters of St. Joseph as professors and advocates for women’s higher education. This site celebrates, through archival materials and historical accounts, how these two religious communities changed the face of St. Michael’s.
