SCHalifax Archives #1432B Sisters and a guest having Thanksgiving at St. Monica’s Convent, Middleton, NS, 1969.

by Mary Flynn, Archivist

At the invitation of Father David Stokes, St. Monica’s Convent opened on August 27, 1969 in Middleton, NS. The Sisters’ ministries were teaching in local schools, parish work, catechism instruction, and visiting people at home and in the hospital. The Sisters’ work in the Annapolis Valley ended after more than a decade when the convent closed on July 30, 1980, due to a lack of personnel.
