The Twelve Days of Christmas - Day 3

Original post date: 27 Dec 2016

"The third day of Christmas my true love sent to me
three French hens..."

Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys, chaperone of the Filles de Roi 
Saint Marguerite d'Youville, founder of the Grey Nuns
Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, first Native American to be canonized.

My gift to you this third day of Christmas is... 

              ... information and names of Nuns
