Toronto Jubilarians

Toronto Jubilarians: ‘May the God who touched your heart in your youth lovingly look upon your generous years of dedication and service in the Congregation of Notre Dame and say: ’It is good.’

So began the blessing offered by Maureen Baldwin, CND to Congregation de Notre-Dame Jubilarians: Sisters Denise Burns (70), Virginia Sullivan (61—not celebrated last year due to Covid restrictions), Mary Jane Leonard (60), Colleen O’Leary (60) on Saturday, November 27, 2021 at St. Ann Parish Hall in Toronto. Wearing their wrist-corsages, the celebrants cut two delicious cakes and all enjoyed celebrating their combined 251 years of commitment as Congregation de Notre-Dame Sisters with refreshments, conversation and most of all, the rare opportunity to see each other face-to-face!

All smiles in Montreal

All smiles in Montreal... as the much anticipated Christmas Exhibition returned from its long-standing hiatus at Résidence Bon-Secours, November 30th , 2021. The Mary of Peace Sisters shopped in a relaxed, mellow ambiance until their hearts’ content. (As the choir sang with piano accompaniment). Decorations, nativity scenes, treasured tricots, crocheted items handmade by the Congregation de Notre Dame Sisters sold like hot cakes! Miniature poinsettias and Christmas cacti were also in high demand. The Mary of Peace Sisters participated in a candy - guessing contest and a draw. As they exited the fourth floor, spacious hall, each were gifted a bonbonnière containing homemade chocolate fudge, cake pops prepared by the hardworking cafeteria staff and delivered lovingly. Afterwards, a Bistro was set-up in another reception hall whereby Martine (the newest member of the community workers) served piping hot coffee, Porto and Moritz icy chocolate squares. The Mary of Peace mingled with Sister Claire Bouchard and other sisters from the first floor.
