Presentation of the Mosaic at the Motherhouse

On Wednesday, May 15, during the regular afternoon coffee break, the Mosaic art piece, the contribution of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame to the international Sowing Hope for the Planet project was unveiled to a full and expectant dining-room. The Congregational Leadership Team was present along with Motherhouse staff, Montreal area Sisters and Associates from Visitation Province and Becky McKenna and Catherine Walker who were visiting Montreal and area this past week. We were joined by the artist, Claire Jacmin-Park who shared some reflections about her creative process. CND Social Justice Coordinator Bineta Ba introduced the project.  Project Committee member Monica Lambton also spoke, along with Congregation Leader Sr. Agnes Campbell who had just returned from UISG meetings in Rome. She shared with us her joy in seeing an image of the Mosaic and the name of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame in the slide presentation during the plenary there. The original Mosaic will be on display at the Motherhouse. It is hoped that this will be a resource for us long term as we draw on what we encounter in the images and meaning portrayed there.
