The Marie-Rose Centre invites you to travel through time. Come admire treasures from the architectural, cultural and spiritual heritage. Explore the historic sites of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary congregation: the Foundation House, the convent and the former living quarters of Mother Marie-Rose. You will discover little-known chapters of the history of Longueuil, Québec and elsewhere as you visit the museum and its thematic exhibitions. Take advantage of your outing to take in the peaceful atmosphere of the chapel.
The Marie-Rose Centre provides you with a glimpse into the life and educational initiative beyond borders of the Blessed Marie-Rose Durocher. An inspired pioneer who was determined to offer young women access to education, Eulalie Durocher (Mother Marie-Rose), founded a congregation of religious educators in 1843, which still carries on to this day, and operates on three continents. Committed to integral human development, these educators have had a significant influence in Québec, particularly with regards to the teaching of music.
Located in Old Longueuil, the Marie-Rose Centre, a member of the Saint Lawrence River Shrines, is open year-round by appointment and features a particular summer schedule. It offers complete or thematic guided tours, according to your preference.
