House Sanctuary of our Lady of Grace Foundation

In 1816, at the Convent of Our Lady of Grace Church in Carignano, the Venerable Padre Pio Bruno Lanteri founded the Congregation of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary. It arose from the union of some priests dedicated to preaching the Spiritual Exercises. We count among the first Oblate fathers Reynaudi, Biancotti, and Golzio Simonino. As a result of anti-religious laws of the Kingdom of Sardinia-Piedmont Oblates were forced to leave the convent, which was then taken, in part, from the beginning of the twentieth century.
