Prize-winning video: This week our local newspaper carried a good news announcement of a prize-winning video produced by students at Leo Hayes High School where Sister Karen Kelly, CND, is a teacher and also the Safe-Grad program coordinator. The contest focused on the topic of responsible use of alcohol and was open to all high schools in the province. The prize was worth $1300 in money but worth much more in the value of its message. The students recounted the difficult story of a young man from their school who lost his life this past year; his younger brother speaks candidly about the dangers of binge drinking and drinking games. Sister Karen’s constant work and presence with these young people is widely recognized and noted here in our city. Congratulations to all!

Sisters of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame de Montréal coming from eight countries will gather in General Chapter this summer in Cornwall, Ontario, from August 11 to 29, 2016. In the course of this meeting, they will discuss major orientations that will set the direction of the Congregation for the next five years, and they will elect a new leadership team.
“No family drops from heaven perfectly formed; families need constantly to grow and mature in the ability to love.” Pope Francis writes these words near the end of his document on family. Francis has a keen sense of the ordinary way of God in each of us and in our lives together. He knows we live in a world where we often do less than the perfect and seem to make more bad choices than good ones. Yet we continue to stay the course and try to keep on being hopeful people, loving parents and faithful spouses.
We are dedicated to our mission of liberating education
through prayer, work and community.
We follow Jesus, the Light
of the world.
