Our residence hall is named after Sister Madeleine Chollet, co-foundress of the CCVI's. Sister Madeleine was born in Roanne on February 7, 1846. She received the habit and the name Madeleine at the monastery of Lyons on July 14, 1867, and left for Texas four months later. At the age of 23, she took charge of the new foundation in San Antonio, Texas, in 1869. She oversaw the growth of the Congregation until her death in 1906.
St. Anthony Catholic High School was founded in 1903 by the Oblates of Mary Immaculate as an Apostolic Seminary and has always had a boarding program, although prior to the year 2004 the boarding facility was on the St. Anthony campus. Prior to 1995, St. Anthony has housed young men from around the United States where there were Oblate parishes. Places such as New Orleans, Colorado, Chicago, Los Angeles and the Texas border cities.
In 2004 when St. Anthony became a co-ed school the boarding program was moved to Madeleine Hall on the campus of Incarnate Word High School, where male students reside on the first floor and female students live on the third floor of Madeleine Hall.
Madeleine Hall has a capacity of 50 students.
