Last year, when visiting The Netherlands for Mom's 90th Birthday and Mom & Dad's 65th Wedding Anniversary, our sister-in-law did drop off this local news paper at our VacantieWoningPardoes.
In which the Theresia Cloister in Meterik was published. That's where I got my 3-year education in Fashion Design in the mid to late sixties of last century.
This is the link from the HALLO Horst aan de Maas: Straatnamen:Theresiastraat Meterik ←just click it.
Streetnames: Theresiastreet in Meterik, a little town within Horst aan de Maas.
So that's where I went for 3 years, on my bike...
It was the February 19, 2014 issue.
For my Dutch readers who are interested in: geschiedenis van de kleine zusters van de H. Joseph -Met de minsten der Mijnen - Gabrielle Dorren
There is a book titled: history of the little sisters of Saint Joseph - For the least of Mine by Gabrielle Dorren.
The English translation of above website about the book:
The congregation of the Little Sisters of Saint Joseph was founded on June 21, 1872 in Heerlen. Over the course of time, more than three thousand Dutch and Belgian women have entered. As religious, they focused mainly on those who were least looked after. The Little Sisters of St. Joseph worked in nursing, mentally defective care, custody institutions, education, elderly homes and church institutes such as seminars and retreat houses. They were active in the Netherlands and in Belgian Limburg, but also in China, Indonesia and Kenya. In with the least of the Mine, Gabrielle renders a history of 140 years, in which the Little sisters themselves emerge in all their diversity: in many ways they gave and give shape to their spirituality of simplicity, dedication and surrender.
Fond memories of this Theresia Cloister, where also our Great-Aunt used to live, before I even went to this Fashion Design school. The sisters had a kind of a nursing home for the elderly. It was my Paternal Grandfather's sister.
Interesting piece of history...
