Sister Regina Albers, curator of the Maria Stein Center Museum and Relic Shrine, holds up a handmade rug that was created by Sisters of the Precious Blood who lived at the former Mary's Home convent in Trinity, Ind. The rug was donated to the Maria Stein Museum in 2002 by Ruth Wayne Schieltz of the Versailles area and previously hung in her grandparents' (Gerhart and Elizabeth Rosina Diller May) home near the convent. Elizabeth May purchased it from the nuns who sold such items to make a living.
