Keys for Sister Georgette

On May 11, 2006, at the Sherbourne Health Centre, Sister Georgette Gregory received a commemorative key to the two new health buses that were donated by the Rotary Club of Toronto. Sr. Georgette, pictured above receiving the keys from Sylvia Milne, President of Rotary Club of Toronto, was honoured on behalf of all the volunteer nurses because she has volunteered on these buses since 1997 and at one time chaired the committee that facilitates community input for the buses.

Margaret May Flynn wins Gordon Cressy Award

Margaret May Flynn received the Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Award for taking a leadership role in initiatives that combined human rights and education.

“Every political discussion is a question of vision and values,” said Councillor Joe Mihevc at Theology on Tap’s April event. “You just need to tease these out.” He urged his audience to use their faith commitment to transform the world. As a city councillor for the past 15 years, with a PhD in theology and social ethics, he is well placed to discuss this topic.

The Spirit of Giving

“I wanted to do something more than our usual Mass on Sunday at St. Joseph’s College,” said Justin Jalea, director of the University of St. Michael’s Liturgical Choir. “ I proposed it to the choir, they agreed and we all set to work.” The result was a concert called “The Spirit of Giving” held on March 3, 2006, a benefit for the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto’s mission in Haiti.

Two Residents Win Cressy Award

Two 4th year graduating students of St. Joseph’s College were awarded the Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Awards on March 7. On the executive of St. Mike’s Rabanus Project, Julia Lauwers, pictured above with college Dean Anne Marie Marrin CSJ to her left and Annamaria Enenajor to her right, helped promote Christianity as a cultural phenomenon by organizing presentation and planning meetings with others enrolled in the Christianity and Culture program. Annamaria sang in the college’s liturgical choir, and volunteered both for the Chaplaincy Team and the Into the Cold Program.
