Located on Boulevard Gouin Ouest in Montreal, Collège Sainte-Marcelline is a private catholic school for children ages 4 to 17 years old. I attended this institution myself, studying under the nuns who taught there. I wondered then about their interior lives and private spaces. Years later, I still carry this curiosity.
Collège Sainte-Marcelline did not have many nuns; I can recall maybe a dozen. The nuns were not as present in elementary school as they were in high school; they became more of a presence as of 7th grade. They all taught religion, with the exception of two. One taught basic computer science, and the other was our counsellor.
I would not trade my time with the nuns of Sainte-Marcelline for anything. I was part of a close community then. I was treated like a little sister.
