History

On 11 February 2010, the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, the regular life of the Trappistines in Brazil, Nossa Senhora da Boa Vista, officially began. The Eucharist was celebrated by the bishop of Joinville, Dom Irineu Roque Cherer, the (delegated) father immediate Dom Bernardo Bonowitz, and attended by the community of Novo Mundo as well as many priests and faithful of the diocese.

The eight founding sisters were from Quilvo in Chili (one Italian from Vitorchiano, already a founder of Quilvo, plus 4 Chilean sisters and 3 Brazilian, all of whom entered at Quilvo).

Father Immediate

Novo Mundo, delegated by Miraflores.
