When Marie-Rose Durocher was 29, Bishop Ignace Bourget became bishop of Montreal. He faced a shortage of priests and sisters and a rural population that had been largely deprived of education. Bishop Bourget founded the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, with Marie-Rose as its first member and co-foundress.
