The Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament came to Rome with commemorative scarves and a large banner marking the 300th anniversary of their congregation. The group of 90 came from all over the world to St. Peter's Square to celebrate their group's third centenary and commemorate the life of their founder, Pierre Vigne.

"We began in France, and then we joined up, spread out to Italy, and then Brazil, and Spain as well. And Ireland. FLASH 1:30 We wanted to see the Pope because a lot of us haven't met the Pope before and this is part of our celebration to come to the papal audience.” 
 
After 300 years, the organization is still going strong. The sisters continue to embrace the vision of their founder in their daily work.
