‘Beautiful turnout’ as St. Rose Philippine Duchesne joins Walk of Fame

A "flat Philippine" cutout of St. Philippine Rose Duchesne was placed by her newly added star on the St. Louis Walk of Fame on June 23 after in was unveiled to the public.

St. Rose Philippine Duchesne probably would have wondered what all the fuss was about, why so many good souls had gathered in her honor along Delmar Boulevard on the St. Louis side of the border with University City.

She neither would have expected nor sought recognition for her good works in helping shape St. Louis, let alone the honor bestowed upon her June 23, appropriately the Feast of the Sacred Heart.
