I was lucky enough to be welcomed by the Religious of Mary Immaculate, and to live in their home. Personally, I can say that I learned a lot. Amongst other things, it made me more sensitive to people in need.
In the hostel, I always felt at home, because the nuns treat us like their daughters, caring whether we slept well, ate well, etc., really like mothers. And if one day one of us is not well, they notice it immediately.
Their way of welcoming people, especially young people, is unique. The most important thing for them is really that the young people feel well in their house.
”J’ai eu la chance d’être accueillie par les Religieuses de Marie Immaculée, et en vivant dans leur maison, personnellement je peux dire que j’ai beaucoup appris, entre autres, cela m’a rendue plus sensible aux personnes dans le besoin.
Dans le foyer, je me suis toujours sentie comme chez moi, car les religieuses nous traitent comme leurs filles, en se souciant de savoir si nous avons bien dormi, bien mangé, etc., vraiment comme des mères. Et si un jour l’une de nous ne va pas bien, elles le remarquent immédiatement.
Leur façon d’accueillir les gens, en particulier les jeunes, est unique. Ce qu’il y a de plus important pour elles, c’est vraiment que les jeunes se sentent bien dans leur maison.”
