An Excerpt of Sister Liliane Tauvette's message for the blessing od the museum
“I am pleased to come and join you through this message and participate in the opening of the new Museum of the Mother House. I am happy with the direction taken by the Congregational Leadership team and the direction of the Motherhouse to transform one of the oldest buildings of the Congregation into a museum with a new reality, building upon the past to promote the Good Shepherd mission throughout the world. I was amazed by the vision that inspires the scenography of the museum: telling stories, questioning, raising awareness. It is with a certain reserve and humility I have accepted that the Fund to finance the renovation and scenography of the new Museum of the Motherhouse bear my name.”
Before the end of this meeting, Bishop Emmanuel Demas addressed the assembly.
