On May 27, 2012, more than 4,000 people gathered in celebration on the esplanade of the port of Vannes for the Beatification of Louise Elizabeth Molé. It's been 5 years already! This year the anniversary will be celebrated at the Mother House in Vannes on May 25th, Feast of the Ascension. In Canada, in Lévis to be precise, on May 27th, more than 250 SCSL and Associates will be gathered around Mother St. Louis to witness to her presence and her ongoing mission.
The ravages of time... the damage caused by the earthquake of 2010... But it was hurricane Matthew in 2016 that gave the death blow to the building.
Reconstruction was a priority! But the resources were not available. Thanks to the support of various organizations, we can finally rebuild! What a great example of rebirth: It shows that with collaboration everything is possible!
A real blessing for Mali!
After the construction of the educational space for the needs of women and the education of children, a first stone was laid, launching the construction of the teachers’ house that is to open its doors in September.
And thanks to the collaboration of Sahel21 (a Malian charity) and STF (Terre Sans Frontières), a well has been drilled and water is flowing in abundance since December!

Surpassing yourself... for the common good and in hope!
Being an Associate gives zest to my life. Mother St. Louis is for me that source of daily inspiration. I draw strength and courage from the witness of her life and faith, which boosts my commitment to that service of listening which is mine. Her charism is my mainstay when times are most difficult. It influences my inner availability, directs it towards doing the extra bit.
Being an Associate is an experience that shapes my Christian life and helps me to give the best of myself. In getting together with the Sisters and Associates, I have found a place, a human space, where I can experience community and can revive my hope. Together, we help each other draw closer to Christ, our Saviour.
