If most of Pilgrims of Charity's associative investment is in India, cradle of the very creation of our vocation, we can not and must not remain insensitive to the harshness of life that also strikes our fellow citizens in France.
For this, a beautiful project is built stone after stone:
the Hermitage Marie Mother of the Poor, in Auvergne.
The presence in France of the Association of Pilgrims of Charity is marked by a work of awareness and information on its Indian missions. Thus, we do as much as we can, on request, visits to show our work with young people in schools.
The association is pleased to come to the meeting of schools which wish for it, and with the explicit request of the head teacher, to share and testify of his missions.
Acquired for that purpose in 2007, the Mill of Azinière became the Center Mary Mother of the Poor on October 10th, 2008, day of its inauguration and its blessing by Mgr. Brincard, bishop of the Puy-en-Velay.
