Images of Philippine
Continuing to celebrate the feast of St. Rose Philippine Duchesne. This statue stands outside the Old St. Ferdinand Church in Florissant, Missouri. It was there in Florissant that she started her second school, in 1819. She is often depicted with two students, one Native American and one of European descent, to show the populations she served. While she only served the Native Americans for a brief time, the desire to be with them was in her heart for most of her life.
