Historic Sites of Manitoba: Chanoinesses Monument (Notre Dame de Lourdes, Municipality of Lorne)

In 1895, the Chanoinesses des Cinq Plaies (called the Sisters of the Saviour), under Mother Honorine Chanut, came from Lyon (France) to Notre Dame de Lourdes in response to a call from Francophone settlers in the area. Over the next century, this eminent religious order contributed to local education, hospital care, religious instruction, and development of culture and arts.
