Fabric Banner 1

Fabric banner; "The Holy Child banner displayed here has significance for many SHCJ from 1931 until the 1960's, on the 25th of each month, it was carried by the eldest novice as the postulants and novices processed around the chapel at Sharon and then at New Sharon, praying in the traditional manner for vocations to the society. Through the generosity of Marion Dailey it has been restored."
