Steve Catlin gave a great talk about Fr. Hegarty's work on the Ste Marie I site
Steve Catlin the Shrine's Archivist spoke to a small group that included Huronia Chapter members, a couple from Toronto, and a group of Catholic educators from Rochester, New York.
Steve detailed Fr. Hegarty's excavation work and his interpretation of building locations and usage at the site, which differs greatly from that of Wilfrid Jury. He showed some photographic slides that Fr. Hegary took in the 1950s and early 1960s.
Steve also showed us the archives and we had the opportunity to examine some of the books in the collection.
To arrange research visits to the archives, contact Steve Catlin through Martyrs' Shrine. Please note that the Shrine is not open year round. Look up their web site for season dates.
