On a territory conceded by the Emperor to R.P. Flogeac, and with the consent of His Majesty, a property of about 70 hectares was reserved for the establishment of a house of prayer. This property was given to our abbot general and the monastery Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception agreed to make a foundation there. The monastery in wood was constructed at the beginning of 1954 to house eventually about 40 religious.
