Sisters and associates have been visiting schools and parishes to speak about St. Marguerite’s life as we celebrate her 400th birthday.
Here are a few of those experiences:
On January 10th Notre Dame High School celebrated St. Marguerite’s Feast Day: As part of the 400th celebration, Sr. Eileen Power spoke at the school Mass of Marguerite’s history and legacy. The Mass and reception which was attended by Congregation de Notre-Dame sisters, associates, staff, students, alumni and donors, celebrated “her spirit, courage, determination, love, light and compassion have been beacons for each of us as we navigate our careers either high school or professional.” (Sandy Soave, school chaplain)
« The St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Mass was an amazing experience that reinforced our school theme for this year « Do something. » Sr. Power’s speech gave me newfound motivation to keep helping others in 2020.” (Grade 11 student Maria Petersen)
On January 11th, a presentation on St. Marguerite was given by 3 associates at St. Pascal Baylon parish.
