"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.

Internationality Celebrations at the Congrégation de Notre-Dame

Together with our holy foundress, who arrived in Ville-Marie with “La Grande Recrue” on November 16, 1653, we celebrate, for the 18th consecutive year, CND internationality. 

In solidarity with all the sisters and associates of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame, we are invited to live this prayer centred on mutuality and interculturality.

United with consecrated persons during this year of consecrated life, and thinking of the migrants and of all the situations of misery that this crisis causes.

 Together, Beyond Borders
