NEW! The Work of Her Hands: Catholic Women Religious in St. Louis History
In 2016, billboards appeared around the St. Louis area with a simple message, “We
have faith in you, St. Louis,” signed “St. Louis Catholic Sisters.” The billboards
were the latest legacy of a diverse group of women religious whose lives and work
have shaped the city’s physical, social, emotional, and religious landscapes for more
than three centuries. This course reveals how these women lived their faith in a changing
St. Louis. It also invites us to consider how their lives, deeds, and way of living
intersected with their religion, as well as larger issues of race, gender, class,
and power in tense moments of reckoning and conflict in the St. Louis area and beyond.
