Madelyn DellaValle will present a curator’s talk on the current exhibit, Windsor’s Catholic Heritage, this Saturday at 2pm at Windsor’s Community Museum, located on Pitt street.
The exhibition, created by Windsor’s Community Museum in partnership with the Diocese of London’s Archives, highlights the contributions of the earliest Roman Catholic churches in Windsor. It features the histories of eight local churches: Assumption, St. Alphonsus, Immaculate Conception, Our Lady of the Rosary, and Holy Name of Mary, Holy Trinity, Sacred Heart and St. Anne’s.
Windsor’s Community Museum features the original church documentation going back to the 1700s. Visitors can discover the link between St. Alphonsus Church and Hotel Dieu Hospital. Find out why Our Lady of Prompt Succour changed its name to Holy Name of Mary. View the gilded wood carved tabernacle door from Assumption Church, and the monstrance and chalice that belonged to Monsignor Langlois from Holy Rosary Church.
The event is free and open to the public.
