Clarion Herald, Archives mount Katrina exhibit
The Clarion Herald and the archdiocesan Office of Archives and Records have teamed up to present the retrospective exhibit “Katrina: A Resurrection Journey,” June 11-Sept. 4 at the Ursuline Convent Museum, 1100 Chartres St., New Orleans.
The exhibit will feature more than 50 Clarion Herald photographs documenting the toll of Hurricane Katrina, the church’s response to the disaster and uplifting signs of the region’s ongoing recovery.
Recovered artifacts, such as sacred vessels and other church-related items, will be on display, among them the chalice recovered from the fire-ravaged Carrollton Avenue home of Bishop Roger Morin, current bishop of the Diocese of Biloxi.
Hurricane Katrina, which claimed 1,836 lives, resulted in nearly $290 million in damages to archdiocesan properties.
Exhibit admission is $5. The museum is open for self-guided tours during the summer Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the last admission at 3:15 p.m. For more information, call 596-3035.
