A saintly bronze character is found in front of the Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center at 181 Buena Vista. She is the Blessed Emilie Tavernier Gamelin, the Foundress of the Sisters of Providence.
Raoul Hunter is the artist whose original cast piece is located in a metro station in Montreal where the shelter she founded once stood.
This replica and seven others, which are found in Providence institutions around the country, have loaves of bread added to the basket and in her extended hand as seen in the pictures. This represent her tireless efforts to feed and comfort the hungry and misfortunate.
Blessed Emilie is portrayed with a kind face and as a woman of obvious action. She looks as though she is ready to come right off the pedestal!
