Triptych of Blessed Philippine at the Old St. Ferdinand Shrine, Florissant, Missouri

This triptych of Blessed Philippine Duchesne was donated to the Old St. Ferdinand Shrine in Florissant, Missouri. It is now located in the convent building, in the front room that was the parlor.

It would have been created between 1940, when Philippine was beatified, and 1988, when she was canonized.
