Prayer Service for the Feast Day of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys, January 12, 2020



Today we celebrate the Feast Day of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys, the foundress of the Congregation of Notre Dame.

As we honor Marguerite today and begin the year-long 400th anniversary celebration of her birth in Blessed Sacrament Province, we are filled with joy and gratitude!

Marguerite’s greatest desire was that God be loved above all things; the neighbor so loved that she was always the servant of that neighbor.

We gather today to remember, to pray, and to celebrate Marguerite’s life of love and service to God and others.

Break the Silence… Stop the Violence

On December 5, Norma Gallant, CND, accompanied by 2 West Kootenay Associates, Tammy Fox and Maureen Wiley, helped to host a vigil at a local coffee shop commemorating the horrific massacre of women in Montreal at the School of Engineering at École Polytechnique in 1989. Sisters of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame have been participating in this annual event since it first began locally 14 years ago. The vigil was opened with a welcoming meditation by a First Nations representative and it was closed by a member of the local RCMP. Respectful remembrance was given to each of the young women killed, as well as all victims of violence. Statistics say that a woman is murdered by her partner every 2.5 days in Canada and that, of every 5 homicides, 4 will be women victims.
