Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys honoured as a Peacemaker on Canada's 150th!

Initiated and sponsored by the Sisters of Providence in Kingston, Peacequest (www.peacequest.ca) is a non-profit, non-denominational, and non-partisan organization that facilitates peace-building initiatives across Canada. PeaceQuest was started in 2013 out of a sense of concern that war was being presented as a glorious struggle in the Canadian government campaign to celebrate the War of 1812, which cost the Canadian public tens of millions of dollars. In honour of Canada's 150th Anniversary of Confederation, PeaceQuest is recognizing 150 peace builders from our country's history. Marguerite Bourgeoys has been named #121: http://peacequest.ca/150-canadians-day-121-saint-marguerite-bourgeoys
