It is to these energetic Sisters of St. Ann that we owe the Queenswood retreat center. As I entered the driveway, I kept a lookout for the deer promised in Queenswood’s literature. I saw none. On the left side of the wooded property stood a residence for the nuns, and on the right what used to be a residence for postulants attending the University of Victoria, and what is now the retreat center. All these two-story buildings were modern, but pleasantly modern. Since it was midweek, there were no group retreats, and there was an ample choice of parking spots.
After a difficult journey, they reached the valley that now bears Fraser’s name, the same valley I was traveling along. They erroneously believed they had found the mouth of the Columbia River. They were almost at the Pacific. The natives had all along been friendly and helpful, supplying the party with salmon, and trading with them for other requisites. But on July 2, 1808, as he neared the mouth of the river, Simon Fraser got into an argument with a Salish chief. Due to the intervening rapids and canyon, Fraser’s party had stowed their own canoes further up river.
The Sisters of St. Ann were here, too, and opened a school for native girls that later also accepted boys. The school taught not only academic subjects but also carpentry, blacksmithing, shoemaking, and domestic science. The city of Mission dates from 1891. Continuing east to the village of Hatzic, I turned left on Dewdney Trunk Road. On the way up hill, I passed a Poor Clare monastery. Then the road headed further up the hill and around the back, until I came at last to Westminster Abbey. There was something exhilarating about arriving at this branch of a 1,500-year-old tradition, the Benedictine monastery, the very soul of Europe, transplanted to a hilltop in this distant land.
