“Made in Angers”

This year, for the third time, the Motherhouse of the Congregation opened its doors for the annual “Made in Angers” experience.

This event organized by Angers Loire Metropole gives the people of Angers the opportunity to visit firms which are part of the local economy or heritage.

On February 27th, March 2nd, 6th and 9th, 4 groups visited the Motherhouse and its significant places: the Chapel, the tunnel, the labyrinth, etc. One of the groups also had the opportunity to listen to an organ demonstration in the Chapel.

In total, 60 people came for the 4 visits, a participation lesser than usual due to the bad weather. They were pleased to get to know the history of the gardens and buildings which are hidden behind the hedge beside the Bon Pasteur Boulevard and they were delighted to cross the tunnel that leads directly to the foot of St. Nicholas Abbey.

Besides the patrimony, we also focused on the mission of the Sisters of the Congregation in Angers, in France and all around the world thanks to concrete examples: hosting migrants, visits to prisons, presence with homeless people, accompaniment of victims of sexual assaults, etc.

Each visit ended with a time of sharing with the Sisters of Province BFMN and the International Community in the dining room of the Motherhouse. It was the occasion for the Sisters to talk about their daily missions.
