Long Description:
La présence des Sœurs grises à Châteauguay remonte à 1765 lorsque Marguerite d’Youville, mère fondatrice, a fait l’acquisition de la Seigneurie de Châteauguay, qui comprenait l’île Saint-Bernard.

En 2011, les Soeurs Grises vendent le tertre qui leur appartenait à la Ville de Châteauguay. Les deux dernières religieuses sont déménagées à Montréal en 2014 et assurent qu'elles reviendront au Manoir d’Youville, comme cliente. «Et si ce n’est pas de notre vivant, c’est sûr que ce sera après», conclut Sœur Saint-Germain, faisant référence au cimetière qui se trouve sur une colline de l’île où les Sœurs grises reposent à jamais.

Et c'est là que j'ai trouvé mes 2 centenaires.

Le cimetière est sur une colline qui surplombe le Fleuve Saint-Laurent à l'ouest et un magnifique verger à l'est. On y retrouve quelques centaines de pierres tombales et, en plus grand nombre encore, les restes mortels des Soeurs Grises qui y sont enterrées.

Sœur Adéline Grégoire St-Bernard est née en 1876 et est décédée en 1978. Elle avait 101 ou 102 ans lors de son décès.



The presence of the Grey Nuns in Châteauguay dates back to 1765 when Marguerite d'Youville, founder mother, acquired the Lordship of Châteauguay, which included St. Bernard island.

In 2011, the Grey Nuns sold the mound that belonged to them to the City of Châteauguay. The last two nuns were relocated to Montreal in 2014 and ensure that they will return to the Manoir d'Youville as a client. "And if it's not in our lifetime, it is sure that it will be after," says Sister Saint-Germain, referring to the cemetery is located on a hill of the island where the Grey Nuns rest forever.

And this is where I found my two centenarians.

The cemetery is on a hill overlooking the St. Lawrence River to the west and a beautiful orchard to the east. It contains hundreds of tombstones, and many more mortal remains of the Grey Nuns who are buried there.

Sister Adéline Grégoire St-Bernard was born in 1876 and died in 1978. She was 101 or 102 years old when she passed away.
