Father Marco Marie de Rotz
I want to save people in the Sotome from poor life
1879(Meiji 12) Father Marc Marie de Rotz, a French missionary who has been assigned to the Sotome, has a variety of farming, fishing, medical, and educational programs to save local residents from plight. I did an activity. Former Shitsu Aid Center is a delivery facility for women,1883(Meiji 16). It was founded with the cooperation of members of the Church of St. Joseph (later Mary Monk), which was founded and trained by the Father himself. In 2003 in 12, some of these facilities were designated as nationally designated important cultural properties as the remains of valuable birth and welfare facilities in the early Meiji period.
Former Shitsu Aid Centeris indispensable in talking about the history and culture of the region.Conservation of the facility was completed in April of 2013, and it is now open to the public.
Currently, in addition to visiting the facilities, we are also engaged in a variety of hands-on activities with the cooperation of many people who spin the thoughts of Father de Rotz.
We look forward to seeing you.
