To Relieve the Poor, Sick and Provide Education for Young Girls -- July 31, 2014

This plaque is on the walls of the Old Ursuline Convent in New Orleans, which is supposed to be the oldest building in the Mississippi Valley.  This is the second building on the site.  The building was completed in 1751.  After the convent and girls' school moved to other sites, the building served as the home of the Bishop and then the Archbishop of New Orleans. 

I took both photos during our visit this month.
