Donation of statues to St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Parish, Sydney, NS

We received a request for two statues of St. Marguerite. One for the outside and another for the inside, for the new formed parish of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys, Sydney, NS. A beautiful statue of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys sits above the main entrance of the CND Health Care Centre in Sydney.

We have offered this statue to the parish and they are more than pleased to receive it.
