Medal rue du bac ParisNovember 27 marks the feast of Miraculous Medal.  The chapel at rue du Bac in Paris is a chapel full of secrets and graces! Would you like a guided tour? Would you like to discover them with us? You should know that this is the “Mother House” of the “Daughters of Charity”. It was called “Hôtel de Châtillon” in 1813 after all the torments of the Revolution. The construction of a chapel began. The solemn benediction of this chapel on 6th August, 1815 was dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

In 1830 visions happened. There followed a wave of vocations. The chapel had to be enlarged which happened progressively. For its centenary in 1930, we see it completely reconstructed as it is now.

And now for you to guide yourself on the visit courtesy of the official website at the rue du Bac in Paris!
