Long Description:
Soeurs de l'Assomption de la Sainte Vierge
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, en 1853, Léocadie Bourgeois et ses compagnes fondaient à Saint-Grégoire, près de Nicolet, la Congrégation des Soeurs de l'Assomption de la Vierge, vouée à l'enseignement. Ces religieuses essaimèrent rapidement en Amérique du Nord et sur d'autres continents, optant souvent, au Canada, pour les régions de colonisation et de mission, afin de mettre les bienfaits de l'éducation à la portée de tous.
