Blessed Marie Rose Durocher

Blessed Marie Rose DurocherAlso known as

  • Eulalie Durocher



Tenth of eleven children. Drawn to the religious life, but turned away due to frail health. She became housekeeper to her brother Theophile, a priest at Beloeil. Because newly independent Canada still had a bit of the wild about it, its bishop (the whole country was a single diocese) had trouble getting European religious to emigrate, so he founded new communities. Eulalie helped found the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary who serve as teachers, taking the name Marie Rose.







Do not imitate those persons who, after having spent a few months as a postulant or novice in a community, dress differently, even ludicrously. You are returning to the secular state. My advice is, follow the styles of the day, but from afar, as it were. Blessed Marie-Rose Durocher, giving advice to a novice leaving the religious life
