In the 1960s, a community of girls and sisters are guests in Valtournenche at the House of the Diocese of Aosta.

The Mont Blanc has undergone hours of contemplation of the sisters Amelia Pierucci and Giuseppina Sala (the founders of the religious Institute), hours of study and hours of joy to accompany the girls through the woods, along streams in summer holidays and winter trips. From 1975 to 2000 the group is housed in Villa Malina in the Verrand hamlet of Pré Saint Didier.
