History of monastery

The Annonciades of Boulogne-sur-Mer, expelled by the French Revolution, re-established their monastery in 1818. Affected by the Combes laws, in 1904, they were exiled in England. In 1922 four nuns consolidated in France. After three years in Paris, they settled in Thiais in 1926. The monastery foundered three communities : Brucourt (1975), Peyruis (1980, transferred to Alajuela in Costa Rica, in 2007), Saint-Doulchard (1988), Menton (2000-2012). In 2009 four nuns carried to Grablin (Poland) the evangelic and marian charisma of the Annonciade.
