Abbotsford Convent Tours in French
Tour the magnificent Abbotsford Convent and learn about the site’s rich history in French – the native language of The Sisters of the Good Shepherd!
Join Convent tenant Delphine Laboureau-Ormancey of French Tête à Tête as she guides you through the dramatic interiors, serene grounds and unrestored dormant spaces – giving insight into the different lifestyles that existed throughout the Convent’s history. On the tour you will discover the diverse history of the Convent; from its use as a meeting point for the Kulin Nation, to its days as a convent when the Good Shepherd Sisters ran a closed monastic site for over a century, to the present day arts, culture and education community.
These tours are aimed at students in Year 10 or above and French speaking adults. The Social History Tours are an Abbotsford Convent Foundation initiative, which you can learn more about here.
