October is Women’s History Month in Canada

October is Women’s History Month in Canada; we acknowledge women and girls from the past and the present who contribute to making our country more inclusive. In 1992, the Canadian Government named October as a time to recognize and celebrate the outstanding efforts and achievements of women and girls in our country. This year marks the 30th anniversary. Recently, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued a lengthy statement on Women’s History Month. “Throughout our history,” he said, “women have played an invaluable role in shaping Canada…. This year’s theme – She Did, So Now I Can – honors women trailblazers who raised their voices as agents of change in fields where they were under-represented, including the arts, education, and politics, and paved the way for future generations of women and girls to succeed.”

Experience Of Entering The Postulancy

This Friday… a wonderful day!

It was with a truly light and joyful heart that I experienced this very meaningful day in my life. Personally, it was like a new beginning following Christ, in the footsteps of Marguerite Bourgeoys. I looked back on my journey up to now and realized how patient and wonderful the Lord is.

The joyful looks all around me, the very warm welcome from our sisters of Tchéré, and the words of welcome from the other CND sisters will remain forever engraved in my heart.
