Representatives from the different provinces gather in Elm Grove to celebrate the centenary of the death of Mother Caroline. When she came to America in 1847, she came as an immigrant to help educate the immigrants in America. She was 23 years old. By 1850, Mother Theresa appointed her to be the vicar of North America for SSNDs. She was responsible for 24 sisters, 17 candidates or prospective members, 30 orphans, and about 1,250 students in her care. When she died in 1892, there were over 200 convents, 2,000 sisters, and 70,000 students under her care.
At this celebration, there were representatives from 19 provinces and 3 regions.
