While the historical documentation of secular women's experiences has found its way into mainstream historical and contemporary literature, the history of Catholic women religious remains largely hidden. This book unveils the history of Catholic sisters and their contributions to the development of the province of British Columbia. Their appreciable work in the fields of health, education and social welfare is documented through journal excerpts, interviews and historic photographs. Their accomplishments are a result of journey by many courageous sisters who arrived in British Columbia beginning in 1858. These Catholic sisters were inspired by a centuries-old spiritual legacy which continues to influence women today.
