Work has already started on the construction of the seniors’ residence, which will house the Daughters of Charity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Missionary Sisters of Our Lady of the Angels, the Missionaries of Africa (White Fathers) and hundred other residents.
The Lokia Group set off last Thursday the demolition of several buildings at the corner of Galt Est and Bowen South. The lot had been purchased from the Daughters of Charity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, who had split their land in two for this purpose.

Thus, part of the convent, a small house, a garage and a shed, all formerly belonging to the religious community, are being demolished.
Remember that on June 12, the three religious communities announced their move to this new real estate project valued at $ 30 million.
The state-of-the-art residence will have 250 units. The tenants will have among other things at their disposal common areas, an indoor garage, a pharmacy, a doctor’s office and a swimming pool, all “at a competitive price for the Sherbrooke market,” according to Dr. Guy Tremblay, President of the Lokia Group .
As for the religious communities, they have made the additional request for private spaces, such as oratories. The chapel will be shared by all, but the vocations of the groups will remain distinct.
