Rosemont College was asked to participate in the making of a block for a quilt to commemorate 150 years of the SHCJ in America. All of the schools and institutions belonging to the SHCJ are represented in the quilt. Cathy Fennell, exectutive director of the library, created the Rosemont College block, which is the first block on the third row.
The quilt was revealed at the recent gathering of all the American Sisters in Philadelphia and will travel to all the schools/institutions run by the SHCJ (during the anniversary year). The quilt will return to Rosemont College on Founder’s Day - April 18, 2013.
