Opening reception: The Word Lived in the Past: A Promise for the Future

The University of the Incarnate Word takes a glance at its past in a Foto History, an exhibit that opens on Sept. 7, 2018  and lasts through Oct. 5, 2018

The Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word arrived in San Antonio in 1869 responding to a call to help those suffering from a yellow fever epidemic. Three young sisters set up a clinic that would become Santa Rosa Hospital. Next they took up the challenge of an orphanage and then a school which in time evolved into The College and Academy of the Incarnate Word. This mission of Sisters and their successors continues at UIW today, with a promise for the future.
