Religious of Christian Instruction to Open Postulate in Dorset

With the permission and special blessing of the Bishop of Plymouth, the Religious of Christian instruction, whose Mother House is at Flone Abbey, les Amay, Province of Liege, Belgium, will open in September a Postulate at their convent, St. Antony's, Sherborne.

The Religious of Christian Instruction have boarding schools, high schools, elementary schools and two orphanages in Belgium and in Brazil. There is another English convent, St. Teresa's, Effingham Hill, Surrey.

This Congregation was founded by the Rev. Mother Agatha Verhelle in 1823 at Ghent, under a rule which is substantially that of St. Ignatius. In 1827, Pope Leo X11 approved of the new Congregation.

During the school year there are retreats for the children. In the holidays retreats are given in some of the houses for former pupils and other ladies. There are also retreats for working women, days of recollection, and other good works.
