A New Haitian Hospital Opens its Doors

Sr. Lorraine Malo, a Sister of St. Joseph of Toronto who works with the organization Our Little Brothers and Sisters tells us of an exciting day…

In Port-au-Prince, on Dec. 4, 2006, the joy and excitement was palpable as everyone rejoiced for Haiti and for the organization of Our Little Brothers and Sisters!  The new pediatric hospital is really a small miracle!  It is a beautiful building, bright and spacious, with modern equipment and up-to-date programmes. 

Working for Peace in Haiti

Mary Alban Bouchard CSJ provides an update on her current work with educational programs in Haiti for Building a Culture of Peace.

Mandalas

During the month of January, the pub of the University of Toronto's Faculty Club displayed a collection of 20 mandalas created by a group of Sisters of St. Joseph. One by Virginia Varley CSJ, called Carnival of the Stars, is shown at the right.

To quote Elizabeth Rosson, the artist and retreat facilitator who led the retreat at which these mandalas were created, "Mandala is a Sanskrit word for 'circle', a symbol of wholeness, perfection, unity and eternity… a place where the invisible is made visible."

The Church's Teachings and Catholics

On Oct. 23, 2006, Fr. Tom Rosica filled the house at Theology on Tap! Participants pondered and discussed "When The Church Teaches, Where Do I Fit In?" with respect to three current issues: same-sex marriage, Islam, and AIDS.
