Feast of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys January 12, 2021

West Kootenay Associates celebrate Marguerite Bourgeoys

One big highlight in the life of West Kootenay Associates is our annual celebration of Marguerite Bourgeoys on her Feast Day. When we gather on her feast, you can sense the elevated feelings of joy among us, especially as we enter prayer and song, and then afterwards a delicious pot luck meal.
