On April 16, 1862, 12 men, women, and children who had been enslaved by the Sisters of the Visitation were emancipated when President Abraham Lincoln and representatives in Congress liberated over 3,100 people enslaved in the District of Columbia. On the anniversary of that day, the Visitation community came together to remember those 12 individuals and pray the Stations of the Cross, reflecting on the Lenten message of remembrance.
