A Life in Pictures

 
 
 

Blessed Marie-Rose Durocher (1811-1849)
foundress of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary

The Cathedral’s latest art treasure now hangs in the Mother Mary Rose Conference Room at the new Pastoral Outreach Center. The icon was commissioned as part of the Centennial Campaign as a tribute to the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary who have ministered in the Cathedral parish for nearly 100 years.

The icon, created by Cathedral iconographer Joan Brand-Landkamer, tells the story of the life of this young French Canadian nun through vignettes—scenes of her life, places she lived. The story begins in the upper left-hand corner of the image, and concludes in the bottom right hand corner.
