Seashells
West Branch Library
Monday, December 13 at 1:00 pm

This presentation explains how Saint Anne became the patroness of mariners, how a small chapel decorated with sea shells appeared in an Indiana forest, and how the community of Sisters living in the woods came to have an annual procession in honor of this Saint. Photographs and explanations of the symbols and stories portrayed by the shells, stained-glass windows, tile floor, and ironwork gate within the tiny chapel will be explained.
