Preserving “Sacred Stories” Through Oral History Programs

April 16 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm EDT

Join us for a webinar jointly presented by CWR and Archivists for Congregations of Women Religious.

Recording oral histories is a method of preserving the past while sharing experiences, wisdom, and stories with present and future generations.

In this session, Sr. Mary Cabrini Procopio will share her experience of spending six years traveling the country and recording the oral histories, affectionately referred to as “Sacred Stories,” of 125 sisters. She will also discuss the technology, methods, and best practices involved. Joining Sr. Cabrini, Julie Kresge, mission communications manager at Felician Sisters of North America, will provide insights into how these sacred stories have been and will be used in their congregation’s communications.

Serving where needed since 1874

Founded in Poland in 1855, the Felician Sisters are a congregation of women religious inspired by the spiritual ideals of their foundress, Blessed Mary Angela Truszkowska, and Saints Francis of Assisi, Clare of Assisi and Felix of Cantalice. Arriving in North America in 1874 following Blessed Mary Angela’s directive “to serve where needed,” they helped to weave the social service system. Today, the Felician Sisters founded, sponsor or support through the presence of our sisters, more than 40 ministries – all continuing to evolve to meet the needs of the people they serve.
