MUSEUM AND ARCHIVES
The Augustinian Sisters collected over 40,000 artefacts drawn from 400 years of life and service. They also preserved over one linear kilometer of rare and ancient books. The Museum’s permanent exhibit has carefully mined these extraordinary resources to trace the history of the Sisters, along with the development of their medical thought and practices and their contribution to the founding of present-day Quebec’s health care system.
Many more objects from the collection can also be found throughout the building.
A MEANINGFUL SOCIAL MISSION
Le Monastère des Augustines is a non-profit organization whose activities are designed with a view to financially support its social mission. This mission is to make the Augustinian Sisters’ heritage accessible to all and to give support and respite to those who care for others. Family caregivers and companions, as well as workers and volunteers from the health and social services communities can take advantage of lodging programs, resources and activities.
