The Oblate Sisters of Providence, established in Baltimore in 1829, were the first order of African American nuns.  They have given over 180 years of community service, primarily as pioneers in Catholic education.  The Order established an exceptional school for girls of color in the early 19th century known today as St. Frances Academy. Admission: $5 / free to HSBC members. Space is limited and seating is first come, first served; doors open at 1:15 pm. Location: HSBC Almshouse.
