Supporting Lay People in their Faith Studies
Sister Jacqueline de Verteuil is the local consultant/advisor to students registered in the Diploma in Ministry Program (DIMP) offered by St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia. At the right, she is pictured at the university’s 2011 graduation with the two DIMP graduating students in gowns. Pictured are, left to right, Dan Archie Cummings; Mary MacInnis, Coordinator of Ministry Programs; Catherine Kaloutsky, Bishop Brian Dunn, and Sr. Jacqueline.
“Students enrolled in this program are seeking a better foundation for their Catholic faith,” said Sr. Jacqueline. “Parishes also benefit from people with background in theology to assist in various ministries.”
This year, Sr. Jacqueline is actively involved in the Toronto Chapter of the St. F.X. University Alumni Association. With a team of graduate students, she will be planning and coordinating the liturgical celebrations to be held at the Newman Centre on Nov. 30 following the Annual General Meeting. All St. F.X graduates will be invited to participate.
