The Catherine Garcia-McDonnell Collection

A Variety of Cards

Here is Cathé Garcia's collection of cards from the early days of St. Norbert's School. These include her Library Card, which apparently each student kept to record their history of borrowing. Various Remembrance cards are detailed, one is of the death of fellow student Frank Gucwa, another is a vocational card beseeching that more priests and sisters enter the ministry. Another is related, a "Remembrance of the Mission." Then we have the Service Squad card, of which Cathé was a member, and this displays the Pledge." Another card is a "Sister Card." Apparently each of the nuns had their own cards with their names stamped on back, kind of like a business card. And finally we have the CYO Card, proudly borne by each member of the Catholic Youth Organization.
