Not from Reims yet in my final year at the Lycée Saint-Joseph in Reims, I had to find student accommodation to be able to complete my last year of secondary school, and this is how I found and lived in the Foyer “Home Saint Louis”, run by the Religious of Mary Immaculate.
This home, which is very calm but also very warm, provides us with a quality working atmosphere, a cohesion between girls, teaches us about life in society but above all about mutual aid and love of our neighbour.
All the sisters are very welcoming and kind, always ready to listen and help. We feel accompanied, and this is very important for a good success.
