Our History

St. Emily opened its doors in September 2006. It was named in honour of St. Emily de Rodate who was born near Rodez, France and who became a nun at Maison St. Cyr when she was eighteen. Emily means "to excel". In 1815, she decided that her vocation was in teaching poor children. With the aid of three young assistants, she began her work in her room at St. Cyr. This was the start of a teaching institute called the Congregation of the Holy Family of Villefanche. It grew rapidly, establishing its own motherhouse and branches. In time, St. Emily extended the Congregation's activities to caring for unfortunate women, orphans and the aged. She saw 38 institutions established before she died in 1852. She was canonized in 1950 and her Feast Day is September 19.

St Emily's Song
Lyrics and Music by J. Ng

St. Emily, St. Emily
Teach me all I need to know
St. Emily, St. Emily
Love me, guide me as I grow

Help me to be a loving neighbour
Help me to be a very good friend
Show me that I can live like Jesus
Show me that his love has no end

Teach me all I need to know
St. Emily, St. Emily
Love me, guide me as I grow
