COVID-19 outbreak at Résidence Bon-Secours

The Sisters of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame confirm that 64 sisters and 28 employees at Résidence Bon-Secours have tested positive for COVID-19. Located in Montreal, Résidence Bon-Secours is an infirmary for older sisters or those with a more fragile health. All necessary health protocols were implemented to treat the sick and best protect the residents and staff members.

We are fully confident in the ability of the CIUSSS du Centre-Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal, members of the Résidence Bon-Secours crisis centre, regular staff working overtime and members of the Red Cross. May all these individuals be kindly thanked for their dedication. Our prayers are with them.

Actions during Covid Time in Maria Province (Japan)

We sent approximately 70 greeting cards to members of the Tsukuba church. They expressed their pleasure at receiving the cards while they were isolated at home.

We posted an English children’s picture book on YouTube. https://youtu.be/b2IfznZituA

The title is Granma, Granma I am dying to see you! It is the story of a little girl who wishes to visit her grandmother at a nursing home during the pandemic. Her mother explains to her that it is not safe to do so at this time and provides her with an explanation of what a virus is and how it spreads. This story was created to help children understand why they needed to stay home when Japan was in lockdown.
