A walk through the Ursulines’ neighborhood

By taking a walk through the Ursulines’ neighborhood, you will see the lasting impact that our pioneers in education have made on the area.

The Ursulines have been a part of Old Quebec since their arrival in 1639. Discover the degree of influence they have had on the people around them as well as the relationships they have maintained with their fellow citizens since they arrived. You will see to what extent these women have been a part of the world, despite being cloistered for the vast majority of their time in Quebec City.

Exhibition of the Altar frontal with Monograms of Jesus and Mary at the Chapel

Attributed to Marie of the Incarnation and the nuns who learned the art of embroidery form her, this frontal is believed to have been used in the first chapel, built in 1674, for Father Chaumonot’s Huron mission in Ancienne-Lorette.

This loan from the Huron-Wendat Museum symbolizes and perpetuates the special relationship between the Huron-Wendat community and the Ursulines that has existed since the 17th century.
