The parish of Sainte-Cécile de Milton is bordered by Granby on the north, Roxton Pond on the east, Saint-Valérien on the south, Saint-Dominique on thesouth west and Saint-Pie on the west.

On January 10, 1922, the school board addressed a letter to Mother Saint-Luc (Alexandri-ne Petit), general superior, requesting teachers for the village school. In 1924, the construction of a convent being completed, three Sisters arrived to teach the children.

Sister Saint-Grégoire-de-Nazianze (Julie-Anne Dumas)
Sister Sainte-Séraphine (Albina Lavallée)
Sister Marie-des-Séraphins (Marie-Ange Ménard)

With an increase in the number of pupils, the school board advises that it will take the rooms previously occupied by the Sisters for extra classrooms. The Congregation buys a house on Main Street. Moving day is August 12, 1981.

In 2003, the Sisters left Milton definitely after 79 years of service to young people and to the parish.
