The Mary Aikenhead Heritage Centre

Welcome to the web site of the Mary Aikenhead Heritage Centre. Mary Aikenhead is the foundress of the Religious Sisters of Charity and the multi-faceted exhibition at the Heritage Centre portrays the history of the Congregation in a creative way. Mary Aikenhead spent the last 27 years for her life as an invalid, communicating to her Congregation through countless letters. The focal point of the exhibition is Mary Aikenhead's own room, where she lived from 1845 until her death in 1858
