TitleCorrespondence and papers relating to the Congregation of Our Lady of Sion
DescriptionFile of correspondence with Srs. Marie Ita and Charlotte Klein of the Congregation of Our Lady of Sion, and Sr. Mary Kelley (Secretary of a Catholic-Jewish Relations committee), on issues relating to Catholic-Jewish relations and the role of Catholic religious communities in Palestine, particularly the Congregation of Our Lady of Sion. Diana Richmond's letters include her memories of Jerusalem - where her daughters were briefly educated by the 'Dames de Sion', and her concerns that the Congregation's missionary spirit was diverging from the intentions of its co-founder, Alphonsus Ratisbonne. In response, there is a long letter from Sr. Marie Ita, as well as copies of the nun's correspondence with 'Hebrew Catholic priest' Fr. Arthur Klyber C.SS.R., articles by Fr. Klyber, a photocopied leaflet by Sr. Marie on 'The Vocation of Fr. Theodore Ratisbonne and Our Mission', a published booklet 'The Conquest of the Miraculous Medal - Marie Alphonse Ratisbonne' (1955) and a letter to Barbara Hamilton-Smith.
