The Fall Scene in Canada
Mother Trincano arrived from New York and by midsummer the new and magnificent monastic edifice was ready. Soon the boarding school opened with eighty students. There were more than three hundred involved in the sodalities of St. Anne and the Consolers of Mary. For several years the Society of the Sacred Heart also had both a parish boarding school as well as the day school. After 1883 this school named "Sainte Sophie" functioned only as a parish day school.
In 1864 the Canadian novitiate was organized at Sault with the first four coming from Manhattanville; they were soon joined by eight more and strong vocations were developed here. It was in 1864 that Mother Trincano was named Superior Vicar of the Canadian houses.
I am driving to Vero Beach to see some friends this week end and so will not be writing my blog for a couple of days.
