The Archives team at Providence Motherhouse got to play “dress up” during a quick stop at the Stratford Festival Archives and Costume Warehouse in mid-May.

The three were attending a conference in nearby London, Ontario — the annual conference of the Catholic Archivist Group. The theme this year was Advocay & Outreach: How We Celebrate Ourselves. The session highlighted five Catholic archives and their recent outreach activities. Danielle Hughes, archivist for the Sisters of Providence,. presented during a session called From The Stacks. It was not all work though; as all conference participants had the opportunity to visit the Stratford Costume Warehouse, home to over 55,000 costumes and props!
