Technical School in New Glasgow, Canada
Canada spoke to the imagination, gave the congregation more security and promised many new recruits (men who would join the order).
The promises of the bishop in Antigonish in Nova Scotia were attractive but -as often happens – reality was different again
The council agreed and in 1956 these brothers left for the New World:
Longinus Koelemij (1946 to Tangshan China and September 1956 to New Glasgow)
Octavianus Frankemolle (note: September 1956 – to New Glasgow)
Salasius van der Kuil (note: September 1956 – to New Glasgow)
Anastatius Knuist (note: September 1956 – to New Glasgow) as the first pioneers to this New World.
In 1957, they started (launched) a Technical School in New Glasgow
At a somewhat later date, the brothers established a novicate and started in Mabou with the development of a farm.
