Andrews of Charlottetown becomes better acquainted with Marguerite

Andrews of Charlottetown becomes better acquainted with Marguerite Bourgeoys: The statue of Marguerite Bourgeoys behind the nurses’ station has been arousing the staff’s interest. Our presence at Andrews had some residents curious about our community’s beginnings. On October 14, Sister Della Gaudet made Marguerite Bourgeoys come alive with an interesting and enlightening presentation on our foundress and our community’s history. Our efficient technician, Sister Noreen Hickey, provided an enriching visual accompaniment with a PowerPoint presentation. Sisters, staff and residents present appreciated this event. Thank you, Della and Noreen!

Newcastle, NB_Statue of Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys

On October 25, 1869, three sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame arrived in Newcastle, NB, to begin their work of educating young people. Their presence has lasted to this day. To acknowledge appreciation, a statue of Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys, has been placed in the church foyer. This statue was donated to the Sisters long ago by Mr. and Mrs. John O’Brien, parishioners and local business people. It found an honored place in the last two residences of the sisters. We are pleased it has now found a home in our parish church.
