Revealed for the first time on The Today Show, the painting, which invariably generates conversation, received a worldwide response. Orbis Books published the book, Holiness and the Feminine Spirit: The Art of Janet McKenzie, which won the 2010 First Place Award for Spirituality from the Catholic Press Association, and The Way of the Cross: The Path to New Life, a collaboration with Sister Joan Chittister, OSB.

Education/Lectures

Connecticut’s Earliest European Settlers: Recent finds from Glastonbury and Windsor;

Education/Lectures

Long Society Meetinghouse, 45 Long Society Road, Preston, CT , 06365

During the past three years, archaeologists and public field school participants have unearthed clues about Connecticut’s early colonial past at three archeological sites. The first was undertaken after the unexpected discovery of a buried house cellar within the original John Mason home lot within the Pequot War-era Windsor Palisade. The second site is a large buried farm complex associated with Lt. John Hollister of Glastonbury, dating between 1650 and 1715. The third is the homestead of Francis Stiles, later owned by the Ellsworth family of Windsor. Join Dr. Brian Jones, Connecticut’s State Archaeologist who led these excavations, and discover what these recent archaeological explorations in Windsor and Glastonbury tell us about Connecticut’s earliest European settlers, and how modern radar-based surveys are helping to find these long-forgotten sites. The Preston Historical Society is sponsoring this program at Long Society Meetinghouse, 45 Long Society Road, Preston, on Saturday, April 21 at 1 pm. A $5 donation is requested.

Faye Ringel, retired Professor of Humanities at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, will give a talk on Norwich native Lydia Huntley Sigourney (1791-1865) on Saturday, April 21, at 1pm. Mrs. Sigourney, a well known writer of her time, had a deep commitment to the education of girls, including African American, Native American, and Deaf children. Lydia Sigourney never abandoned her passion for Deaf education, remaining a supporter of the nation’s first school for Deaf children in Hartford, CT, until her death. This program will take place in the Story Room.
