Recluse Sisters

The Recluse Sisters are a Roman Catholic community of Religious Sisters who were founded in 1943, in Alberta, Canada, by Rita Renaud, Jeannette Roy and the Reverend Father Louis-Marie Parent, OMI, as Les Recluses Missionaires. They are a monastic religious institute who practise perpetual adoration of the Eucharist, with an accent on prayer, silence and solitude in a cloistered way of life, which includes the Liturgy of the Hours (the Divine Office).

Their inspiration is the recluse Jeanne LeBer (1662–1714), who lived in the early days of Montreal. Today's Recluse Sisters live in two monasteries, both in Quebec, in Montreal and St Jerome.
