Living Out Our Orientations Together

On Sunday, January 30, the Sustainability Committee led sisters and associates in another ZOOM session. Facilitated by Alana Forrester, the group gathered was invited to look at the Mission Orientations 2021- 2026 through the lens of Marguerite Bourgeoys. Over 70 devices were connected (some had more than one person present) as we enjoyed nearly two hours of listening and sharing.
