An Historical Tour Remembering Incarnate Word Sisters History and San Antonio History, March 24 and repeated October 6, 2018. A tour for renewal and recommitment to service as we remember where the Franciscan priests came to serve in 1731 and where Incarnate Word Sisters came in 1869. Enjoy two of the Missions which UNESCO has designated World Heritage Sites and San Fernando, the oldest cathedral sanctuary in the United States. Reflect in the beautiful Chapel of the Incarnate Word, a contemplative space which has given Sisters strength for mission and see the Sisters Heritage Center exhibit. Explore San Francisco de la Espada Mission and Concepcion Mission and learn of the Incarnate Word connections. Visit the San Fernando Cathedral Museum which has the chalice of Bishop Claude M. Dubuis who wrote a letter with an invitation that brought French young women to Texas to care for those in need. Acclaimed Texas Historian Dr. Gilberto Hinojosa and Incarnate Word Sister Martha Ann Kirk, Th.D., will lead the tour.
