We Speak Your Names, a gathering of the descendants of those who were enslaved by the Society, took place on September 23, 2018 in Grand Coteau, Louisiana. This event was planned by a committee of descendants and was a direct response to their expressed desire to have the Society remember and honor their ancestors.

The day began with a ritual memorial of the ancestors designed by their descendants in collaboration with Religious of the Sacred Heart. A monument naming the known enslaved persons of the convent in Grand Coteau was dedicated and blessed in the parish cemetery.
