November, 1999. NCVNVM Office at LaSalette Provincial House burns. The Provincial House of the La Salette Order in Attleboro, Massachusetts burned on November 5, 1999 is a total loss. One person was killed in the fire. The NCVNVM offices were located in this building. We put together a scrapbook of photos from the Attleboro Sun Chronicle Newspaper plus other photos to show the fire and damage. The La Salette order is the faith community of NCVNVM's President, Fr. Phil Salois. The order has generously supported NCVNVM from its inception with financial assistance, the use of space in the now-destroyed Provincial House, and the warmth of their members who have greeted NCVNVM members and retreatants who have used La Salette facilities in Attleboro from time to time.
