Today, 02 29 2024 : But if so great a power is shown to have followed and to be still following the dispensation of His suffering, how great shall that be which shall follow His glorious advent!

St. Rita

As a sign of grace, at the age of 60 Rita received the stigmata of the crown of thorns, in the form of an open wound on her forehead, for her profound veneration of the Passion of Christ


St. Justin's Chapel

In the 1960s, the Augustinian Fathers transformed the chapel and reserved a place for the institution’s patron saints: Justin (side altar), Monica (stained glass windows), Rita (side altar).

Philately

We organise public auctions of collector’s stamps. The profits are entirely donated to the Œuvre St. Justin.
