Shrine of our Blessed Sisters.

Official opening of the Shrine of the Ursuline Martyrs of Valenciennes.

The Shrine of the Ursuline Martyrs of Valenciennes, after the authorization given by Sister Susan Flood, our Prioress General, and by the Congregation for the Cause of Saints, was offered by the Ursulines to the chuch of Saint Géry in Valenciennes.

On Thursday July 2, 2020, Monsignor Vincent Dollmann, Archbishop of Cambrai, proceeded to the opening of the Shrine, in the presence of Sister Brigitte Brunet, Sister Marie-Claudine Deransy, and several Sisters of Notre-Dame de la Garde, and Sister Brigitte Monnier, on visit among us.

It was a moving moment ! The Relics of the Saints remind us of their human condition and their eternal vocation as children of God. This condition and this vocation are also ours.

We pray for the diocesans of Cambrai. May our martyred Sisters grand them today, just as they experienced it yesterday, to find joy in the service of educating the young. May they obtain for us vocations to the priesthood, Sisters, and laymen and women committed to the Church, who could tell their contemporaries the beauty of human life and the immense hope our Christian faith opens up for us.
