A new exhibit opening at Windsor’s Community Museum will feature highlights from the Roman Catholic Diocese of London’s Archives.

This exhibition was created by Windsor’s Community Museum in partnership with the Diocese of London’s Archives and features Assumption, St. Alphonsus, Immaculate Conception, Our Lady of the Rosary, and Holy Name of Mary, Holy Trinity, Sacred Heart and St. Anne’s churches. These eight churches were earliest Roman Catholic churches in Windsor.

Windsor’s Community Museum features original church documentation going back to the 1700s. Visitors will also be able to discover the link between St. Alphonsus Church and Hotel Dieu Hospital. You can find out why Our Lady of Prompt Succour changed its name to Holy Name of Mary. You will also be able to 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 opening reception takes place this Thursday from 5 to 7pm. The exhibit continues through August 31st, 2013.
