Presentation

A strange coincidence! Is this an omen or a sign?
The virgin behind the presbytery has an unusual history. Know that before, at this place the wall was full.
One afternoon in 1923, two children were playing there. Following a thunderstorm, the wall collapsed and one of them died ...
The story does not end there. Thirty years later, a man from La Plaine sur Mer asked for permission to erect a virgin to thank her for sparing her war-returned children. This is how the wall was rebuilt.
The center of the arch of the niche, which receives the statue, was built vertically above the scene of the drama.
Subsequently, a white rosebush could be seen, blooming almost 12 months a year.
Surprising isn't it?
(Story taken from the testimony of Maurice Foucher published in Ouest-France in December 1993)
