The sisters of the Blessed Sacrement of Valence (France) are implanted in Brasil


Since the Institute of the Religious of the Most Blessed Sacrament of Valence was so close to total destruction in 1903, in France, the country of origin, it was obliged to look further afield to continue to witness to the enthusiasm and missionary zeal received from Peter Vigne.  "To carry overseas the knowledge of the love of God” was utmost in the minds and hearts of a growing number of Sisters....Sr. St. Emérentienne Vigne, Superior General together with Sr. St. Félix Baudet, the competent and dynamic Sister in charge of the novitiate in Rome, continued to explore that possibility until they met a Benedictine Abbot, a close friend of the Archbishop of Salvador de Bahia (Brazil)

To really feel the emotional intensity of that epic missionary venture in Brazil, one should read the two volumes of "Pages Intimes”, a collection of letters and annals that chronicle the story of the various foundations.  These were often difficult and hazardous experiences for the Sisters arriving from Europe, on their first contact with tropical diseases and infections endemic in the Region.  Great selflessness and fervour quickly ensured the replacement of European sisters by their Brazilian counterparts. The region grew rapidly.  Between 1920 and 1927 in Salvador,  there were 40 clothing ceremonies, 30 temporary professions and 16 final professions.

Today, the 19 Brazilian convents are spread mainly throughout the states in the Nordeste (Bahia, Alagoas, Sergipe, Pernambuco, Ceará) but also in the South-East (São Paulo) or in Amazonas (the state of Para, where agrarian conflict and social unrest is most keenly felt).  The Sisters are involved in the service of education in seven educational establishments, social work, a center for professional training.  They are also involved in pastoral ministry in the poorest and most deprived areas working in close co-operation with church based groups (biblical groups, catechetics, seminary formation,...)
