The Sisters of the Rosary wish to leave their convent in Rimouski

News - January 8th, 2020

The congregation des Sœurs du Saint-Rosaire wants to find a future for its imposing convent which overlooks downtown Rimouski. The reflection has been underway for more than three years already and it could know its outcome this year.

The nuns made the decision to dispose of their mother house last fall, due to the decrease in the number of sisters in their Rimouski congregation in recent years.

In another era, up to a thousand nuns lived there at the same time, whereas there are only 200 today.
