Bishop Joseph M. Gilmore : First Native Bishop of Helena
Bishop Gilmore gives the final blessing at the 100th anniversary Mass at St. Ignatius Mission in September 1954. Cardinal Spellman had preached the homily and his red vestments can be seen in the lower right corner. The celebration of the Jesuit mission to the Flathead people allowed Bishop Gilmore to recognize the great achievments of the Diocese of Helena.
