UNANIMA is coming to Paris!

UNANIMA Board Chair Stacy Hanrahan CND, Coalition Coordinator Michele Morek OSU, and some other UNANIMA community representatives (e.g. SNJM) will attend the UN Climate Change Conference from November 30th to December 11th.  If there are any UNANIMA groups who would like for us to give a presentation on your work at the United Nations while we are there, please notify Michele at morek.michele@gmail.com In Paris we will be staying with the Sisters of Notre Dame de Sion, but hope to meet other UNANIMA members who might be attending the conference… would you please contact us if you plan to attend? Maybe we can meet for tea.

The Conference Centre where the UN will meet (in Le Bourget, Paris) will not be accessible to all, but France has built a lovely big place for the general public, right next to the Conference Centre. This vast space is open to all, and will host debates, conferences, cultural exhibitions, film screenings, and civil society displays on climate change.

"Impression": A Commemorative Sculpture in Honour of the Sisters of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame

On Sunday, October 18, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. across from the building at 2 Sainte-Anne Street, the public artwork entitled Impression, a work commissioned by the City of Pointe-Claire and a collaborative creation by artists Eileen Finn and Shelley Miller, was unveiled.

The sculpture was created to recognize the 230-year presence of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame in Pointe-Claire. As teachers, neighbours and as friends, the six hundred five sisters who lived at the convent and later at the CND retirement facility (when the building’s vocation changed), had a marked impact on the community. Indeed, well into the 21st century they continued to be involved in the community; some provided help to students with school work or offered spirituality classes.
