The School of The Dominican Teaching Sisters of Fanjeaux (France) have received 10 Novices on the 4th of August. The congregation of the Dominican Sisters of Fajeaux was founded in 1975 as a group of 19 Sisters in the Mother House in Tolouse which they left, to remain true to the traditional Liturgy and to the fundamental constitutions.

Today, 35 years later. the "School Sisters of the Dominicans of the Holy Name of Jesus at Fanjeaux" are circa 180 sisters. They operate eight schools.

The Mother house is located in the vicinity of Prouille (in Southwest France) where in 1208 Saint Dominic founded the first Cloister for Women.

Pardon me, but I think you may have me (Oberon) confused with someone else (0beron).

His name begins with a zero (0).

Sorry, I don’t know. I don’t think they have any facilities in the USA either, but will check.

You might be confusing them with the Teaching Sisters of Dominicans at Nashville who are affiliated with the Diocese there.

They have had for years a school in Post Falls, Idaho & I believe they have a smaller new one in the NE USA.
