From May 10 to December 22 2017Since its founding, Montréal was profoundly marked by the contribution of the female religious communities. As women of action, they served as teachers, nurses, missionaries, architects, musicians, etc. With this exhibit, discover these groups of women, the diversity of their involvement, the extent of their legacy and what they have become.
