Source: FSSPX News

The Congregation of the Fanjeaux Dominicans of the Holy Name of Jesus organized from February 9-14 a pilgrimage of thanksgiving in Rome on the occasion of 40 years since its foundation in Fanjeaux (France).

The congregation exists for the education of young girls by providing them with quality Christian teaching. The congregation is made up of 200 religious working today in 8 secondary schools and 6 primary schools in France, Germany and the United States. In this pilgrimage, the sisters accompanied their students who numbered 950, as well as a 100 teachers and parents.

It is through its commitment to the Tridentine Mass and Tradition of the Church that the congregation has experienced such a thorough development in the last 4 decades. So she wants to give thanks to the Eternal City, to Divine Providence for all His benefits.

The congregation thanked the Roman authorities for allowing entry into the basilicas, but regrets that, despite repeated requests to the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, a church in Rome could not be made available for pilgrims’ celebration of the Mass. The sisters and children all pray that the Church will find with its 2,000-year old Tradition, its missionary outreach throughout the world.
