Long Description:
Soeurs des Saints Noms de Jésus et de Marie

Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary

Dans le climat de ferveur suscité par le renouveau religieux des années 1840 au Québec, des femmes énergiques et zélées établirent plusieurs communautés à vocation sociale. Ainsi, Eulalie Durocher fondait à Longueuil, en 1843, la Congrégation des Soeurs des Saints Noms de Jésus et de Marie, vouée à l'instruction des jeunes. Cette mission d'éducation amena ces religieuses à se disperser rapidement en Amérique du Nord et sur d'autres continents. Leurs excellentes institutions ont grandement favorisé l'essor de la culture, comme en témoigne la célèbre École de musique Vincent-D'Indy, à Montréal.

As a result of the religious revival that swept through Quebec in the 1840s, energetic, dedicated women established a number of religious communities devoted to education and social service. In 1843, Eulalie Durocher founded the Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary in Longueuil to teach young people. The community quickly spread in North America and abroad. Its excellent institutions, such as the famous Vincent-d'Indy School of Music in Montreal, did much to promote cultural development.
