Around the Town with Lou - March 18, 2011

One million people have seen the exhibit called “Women of the Spirit,” the history and story of America’s nuns. It opened in Cincinnati, moved to Dallas, then to the Smithsonian in Washington, then Ellis Island, where New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan officially cut the ribbon. It is now in Iowa and from there will go to Los Angeles, South Bend, Indiana and finally Sacramento, CA. When our daughter, Sister Annmarie and four other sisters begin to work on the project five years ago, they never dreamed that it would be so successful. The exhibit cost $4 million and these women raised that money, wrote the stories, created the graphics, researched the history from the first French sisters to arrive in New Orleans in 1700 until today. The stories tell of the work of these women through war and peace, always fighting for the poor and the desperate. Each exhibit stays about four months in each locale. It will visit nine places over a period of three years.

Murphy’s Irish Pub at 234 Old Country Road will do a bang up business on St. Patrick’s Day. But Mike Murphy’s place is good any time. Try their bangers and mash, shepherd’s pie or their fish and chips while you order your pint of Guinness. The food is good and the people very friendly.
