Ca. 23 women in the Sisters of Mercy community at Mount St. Mary's Sacred Heart Chapel : sisters (black veils), novices (white veils), and postulants (black tulle veils) in prayer in the choir of the chapel. Good example of Pre-Vatican II sanctuary, with the railing (where Communion is received); the altar built into the back wall of the sanctuary, requiring the priest to turn his back to the people; and the tabernacle placed centrally on the altar. Dated 1955.
