In 1794, twelve Sulpicians fled persecution by the National Convention and emigrated to Montreal, Quebec. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, the Sulpicians of Montreal would have become extinct had not the English Government humanely opened Canada to the priests persecuted during the French Revolution. Under the previous French Colonial government, the King of France had granted the Sulpician Order large parcels of land in Montreal. The Catholic Encyclopedia also records that after lengthy disputes, in 1840 the possessions of the Sulpician Order, coveted by the English business agents, were recognized by the British Crown and the Sulpicians were free to keep all their holdings and to continue undisturbed their work for the Church and society. Included in their vast land holdings was the property through which the Lachine Canal was built in 1825. After convincing the government to designate the property on the banks of the canal as industrial zones, the Order began selling off parcels for industrial development at enormous profits that helped finance their good works. 1794 was a common year starting on Wednesday (see link for calendar). ...

Society of Saint-Sulpice (2248 words)
Every Sulpician should be animated by great zeal for the glory of God and the sanctification of the clergy, should profess detachment and abnegation, practice poverty, be submissive especially to bishops.
A good Sulpician constitutes himself everywhere and always the companion and the model of the future priests, in their pious exercises, recreations, meals, and walks, briefly in all the details of their life.
The Sulpician is either the model of the pastor in the ministry or the trainer of the priest within the seminaries.
