St. Julie Billiart Canonization Film

MND Julie OH

When I sent off the 16mm film of the Canonization of St. Julie Billiart to be digitized, I had no idea what was on the film. To my surprise, there was no sound and was only 12 minutes long. Though filmed on June 22nd, 1969, it seems much older, perhaps because it is silent.

A little over 8 minutes into the film, the camera lingers on 3 of the Sisters of Notre Dame’s Superiors–Sister Loretto Julia Carroll, Sister Mary Linscott and Mere Josepha de St. Francois.
