Sr. Mary Antoinette left us around 10 years ago to help re-open our cradle monastery in Troyes, France. She gave us a little violin concert while she was here.
The Troyes Monastery, located on rue Mitantier very close to the Cathedral, is thus the ‛Cradle’ of our Order. Unfortunately, due to a lack of vocations as well as the advanced age and poor health of the Sisters, the Monastery was closed in 1997. It was re-opened in 2007 by Mother Marie Emmanuel of the Cleveland, Ohio Monastery with the participation of Sisters from the USA and India.
It is the Sisters’ great joy to dwell there in the House of the Lord, to live within the walls of that sacred place where the first Eucharistic Throne of our Order was established and where Jesus was praised, loved and adored in the heart of France for generations.

And time to say goodbye: Brother David helps load the van for the sister's departure. May God continue to bless them!
