Our Province at a Glance: 114 Years

As part of the year-long celebration of the 350th birthday of MARIE BALAVENNE, co-foundress of the Daughters of the Holy Spirit, the US Province is excited to present an exhibit in the format of a timeline tracking the growth of the Congregation from its foundation in 1706 through its expansion to the United States at the beginning of the 20th century. The establishment and evolution of the US Province follow and are duly depicted as the DHS Mission was incarnated and shaped over more than a century. The exhibit invites us all to journey with the Sisters as they strove to follow the inspiration of the Spirit in specialized contexts: education, nursing, social and spiritual fields. The display follows their trek in the past, in the present and perhaps even into the future, as our dreams, vision and the Spirit will allow. 

We are pleased you are with us for this pictorial/historical and personal journey. May our time together lead us in our search for new adventures in mission as we respond to the creative and surprising calls of our Triune God.

Further information about the US Province of the DHS may be obtained by contacting our Office of Development at devofdhs@yahoo.com.
