Abstract: What future for the religious congregations in Quebec ? Such a question invites us to look into the socio-historical evolution of religious women communities in Quebec, since the 60's, along with the « Révolution tranquille » and the Vatican II aggiornamento. A major transition occurs inside a decomposition recomposition process of a whole society entity affected in its morphology, structure, culture and psychosociological dynamism. A case study allows the analysis of the decomposition recomposition process of those groups based on the organizational life cycle concept of one arrived at a critical point where the issue is a paradigmatic change or the group extinction. This transition dynamics gives rise to a confused and destabilized situation from which could emerge the creation of a new life style, the institute refounding and the whole religious life renewal.
