Catherine McAuley - Engraved Holding Cross
Catherine McAuley, RSM (29 September 1778 – 11 November 1841) was an Irish Catholic religious sister who founded the Sisters of Mercy in 1831. The women's congregation has always been associated with teaching, especially in Ireland, where the sisters taught Catholics (and at times Protestants) at a time when education was mainly reserved for members of the established Church of Ireland.
Our Catherine McAuley holding cross takes our largest holding cross and laser engraves a picture of Catherine McAuley on the bottom of the cross. The cross is 4" by 2" and is made to fit in your hand. Hand crafted out of Bethlehem Olive Wood in the Holy Land.
