Early last year Sr. Kathleen wrote our archives (Canadian Province) asking for Sister Loyola Street’s account of her aunt, Mother Ignatia Lynn (one of the first Canadian IBVM’s). Sr. Kathleen wanted to share her remarkable story online. It is a wonderful example of the inter-connectivity of archival materials – an example of how all of our archival holdings contribute to the international IBVM story.
Regarding the publication, Sr. Kathleen wrote (via email) “[…] We owe her [Mother Ignatia Lynn] such a debt of gratitude for the care she took of Loretto during her long lifetime.” Publishing this piece is a fantastic way to share her story worldwide and celebrate her life and hard work.

Last year also marked the publication of the first official collaborative newsletter “Loreto Archivists International.” Thank you to Sr. Kathleen and Áine for creating this wonderful document and pulling together the efforts of our archivists worldwide. The design is wonderful and the articles within very interesting!
I am looking forward to visiting the “Uniflip” website to see how it’s all done – another example of sharing of resources! Uniflip.com
