The Duchesne Prayer Room at Mount Anville Secondary School was created in 2018 to commemorate the bicentennial of the journey of Saint Rose Philippine Duchesne to the United States in 1818. The Duchesne Prayer room was created with input from the Society of the Sacred Heart Irish – Scottish Province and United States – Canada (USC) Province.

The Duchesne Prayer Room was made possible thanks to Anna Gethings, David Gunning, Eibhlis Connaughton, Carolyn Osiek, RSCJ, Director of the USC Province Archives, as well as the staff at the Shrine of St Rose Philippine Duchesne in St. Charles, Missouri. The Mount Anville Sacred Heart Education Trust had the honour of hosting Suzanne Cooke, RSCJ, and Ann Taylor, RSCJ, of the USC Province in the Duchesne Prayer Room on the occasion of their visit to Mount Anville in March 2019.
