Notes Your cloister will be the wards of the hospitals. Your enclosure obedience - Your grille fear of God. The Chapel of St. Louise de Marillac is located to the right of The Miraculous Medal Chapel. Here we see in white Trani Marble, set against a background of Forest Green Marble, a statue of St. Louise holding a clinging child, surrounding it with love and care. In the roundel above the altar we see her attending a sick woman. On the altar frontal, there appears the seal of the Vincentian Sisters and St. Louise is identified by a text which reads "Patroness of Christian Social Workers."
