Figure of the Holy Child in a Manger
Figure of the Holy Child in a manger (wooden). There is a note on the bottom (see 22a) from Mother Mary Laurentia Dalton who sent the figure to the Novices. She had been Novice Mistress for a number of years, probably in the early 1950's. Then she became Superior General.The figure was probably sent from Rome at Christmas time although the sisters celebrated the 25th of every month at that time. The note says:With (?) most loving greetings to my dear Novices! Please do remember me _______ prayer on the 25th! Devotedly in J.C., M.M.Laurentia, SHCJ

Painting of the Holy Child 01

August 15 1980 This picture used to be in Mayfield until the nuns returned to Neuilly after the first World War when rue Perronet was opened in 1921 by Rev. Mother Mary Theresa Walton, Rev. Mother Mary Frances Tholhieust (sp?), being Rev. Mother General; this picture was given to that Neuilly foundation by R. Mary Frances that this house may possess a momento of Rev. Mother Foundress, the picture being "attributed" to her. This was told to me and to the first and successive communities of the Holy Child Convent in Neuilly by Mother Mary S. Maurice Reconig (sp?) who was the companion of Rev. Mother Mary Theresa when the house was opened: (M. M. Maurice S was "in charge" of rue Perronet after Rev. Mother Theresa returned to England) - Later on, M.M. S. Maurice became the superior of Neuilly. During the second World War this picture was rescued and carefully preserved by a friend...returned to us and until the closing of Neuilly in 1975 was always hanging in the front hall of the house as it had been from 1921 to 1940. - Sr. Marie Pierre Rubeaux, SHCJ. (Note on back of picture.)
