"Behold the place of our delight!"

Annecy, France 1610


This quotation by St. Francis de Sales
was placed above the door of the
first Visitation convent.
It was a simple house, given character by Francis' dream
that the women who lived there
make it a place of gentleness and hospitality,
bound more by love than by vows.

 As Mary greeted Elizabeth
in the mystery of the Visitation,
we'd like to take this opportunity
to welcome you to our "place of delight",
the Sisters of the Visitation, Dubuque, Iowa.
Spend a little web-time with us,
sharing our life in community,
our ministry, our spirituality,
through the relationships that form our lives
and the heritage of St. Francis de Sales
and St. Jane de Chantal.
