This year marks the 75th anniversary of Bethune’s first visit to St. Kate’s. While at the College of St. Catherine, Bethune developed friendships with several of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, who were later instrumental in persuading Bethune to deposit her writings, artwork and other personal belongings in the archives at St. Kate's. In recognition of this connection, many of Bethune's works are currently on display at the Wisdom Ways Center for Spirituality in the CSJ Carondelet Center (through November 10). This is in addition to the exhibition at the Catherine G. Murphy Gallery on the St. Paul campus (through December 19).
