Sisters Lorraine Abbass, Rosemary Brosseau, Shelley Grant, and Donna McInnis, liaison from the Administration Team, will meet on April 27th at the Motherhouse to review all requests received for financial assistance. Recommendations for granting financial support will be forwarded to the Province Administration Team.
Many sisters and associates have taken an active role in helping to relieve the plight of refugees as they arrive and settle in Canada. Several requests were received from Congregation of Notre Dame Sisters across the country requesting financial support for refugee support projects in their local areas. All such requests were reviewed and received approval.
We extend a warm welcome to Sister Évangéline Mengue who joined the Marguerite Bourgeoys community in Summerside on January 24, 2016. Sister Évangéline is taking two months from her ministry in Cameroon to further develop her English language skills. She will also spend time with our sisters at de Sève residence in Montreal. We wish Évangéline a peaceful enriching time among us.
