Tracy (Marie-Auxiliatrice School)


The Marie Auxiliatrice parish is an offshoot of the St. Joseph of Sorel parish. It is west of the Richelieu River, south of St. Joseph of Sorel parish, east of Enfant Jesus parish, north of St. Roch. The Quebec Iron and the Titanium Companies, located in Marie Auxiliatrice, own the river front lot on the Richelieu River which are part of the parish.

Father Alfred Lalime and the members of the school board ardently wanted to entrust the St. Joseph of Sorel School to the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Saint Hyacinthe. At the request of Mr. Willie Mongeon, president of the school board, Mother St. Madeleine of Pazzi (Sara Cordeau), superior general, made it possible to open a new school with seven teaching sisters to replace the lay teachers. The construction of the school including a sisters' residence was then started.
