Benedictine Convent in Mont-Laurier, QC

Built in 1950,
the Benedictine Monastery 
in Mont-Laurier, QC
will be demolished.
The Benedictine Sisters arrived in Mont-Laurier in 1934. Today they number 15 women, who will be relocated, although their destination has not yet been disclosed. There are few, if any, vocations; therefore, the only solution is the destruction of their present monastery. The sale of the bluiding & its grounds began in November 2010. The sisters must vacate the monastery by April 2011.
