A museum and shrine honoring St. Marianne Cope is ready for visitors. The center will honor a woman raised in central New York and who became a saint two years ago.
The museum sits on North Townsend Street, in the shadow of St. Joseph’s Hospital on Syracuse’s northside. Cope was one of the founders of St. Joe’s and current CEO Kathryn Ruscitto says there will always been a connection.
“The reason we are such a unique institution is because of the roots that started with St. Marianne,” Ruscitto said. “So we are just delighted to have it on our campus.”
