People sitting for an open-air Mass, Congo, ca. 1926
Congo, Africa 1926
A slightly elevated view shows a large crowd of people seated outdoors, several Catholic missionary sisters visible in the group. They face toward the edge of the postcard, the altar itself out of scope. The back of the postcard has no handwriting on it. Printed at the bottom of the correspondence section is "Mission des Filles de la Charite de St. Vincent de Paul a Nsona-Mbata. Missie der Dochters van Liefde van St. Vincentius a Paulo te Nsona-Mbata." "5. - La messe en plein air le st Novembre 1926. H. Mis in open lucht den 1a November 1926." Also included in the International Mission Photography Archive.
