Standing Room Only for Theology-on-Tap

Over 60 people packed the back two rooms of the Foxes Den Pub on Nov. 23 to hear Dr. Moira McQueen (photo right), bioethicist and moral theologian from St. Michael’s Faculty of Theology, speak on “Moral Decision Making.” This was the third Faith Connections event.

Contemplating the Moments of Conversion in our Lives

The Faith Connections event on Nov. 4, "Called to Conversion and Service," was an evening filled with stories, song and time to contemplate the moments of conversion that have occurred in our lives. The guest speaker, Rob Shearer, shared with us his personal journey in faith. In particular he talked about some key moments or turning points that have led him on a life of rich experience. Accompanying Rob was the wonderfully talented Julia who played guitar and sang some well-selected songs that complemented Rob's stories.

Sowing Peace in Haiti

Mary Alban Bouchard CSJ, assisted by Haitian collaborators, has completed the writing and publishing of a series of 16 booklets in the Creole language for animators of youth groups. Called “Lape Gaye,” which means “Sowing Peace,” each 16-page booklet encourages Haitian teenagers to build a culture of peace.

Nuns on the Run....for Haiti

Do you think we could do it? That was the question that started it all six years ago. The "it" was to walk from Morrow Park at 3377 Bayview Ave. to their home at 74 Wellesley St. West. The "we" refers to Sisters Teresa Garvey and Theresa Rodgers. And that was how it all began.

That first walk was just for fun. The next year the T(h)eresas decided to walk to raise funds for Haiti, and so it has been each October since.

Five years of Fontbonne Ministries

Five years ago, Joan Breech (left) began her work with the Sisters of St. Joseph as administrator of Fontbonne Ministries. To celebrate, General Superior Sr. Margaret Myatt (left) surprised her on Aug. 8, 2005, with a cake, roses and a gathering of staff involved in Fontbonne over the years.

Joan reminisced about the lunch with Sr. Margaret, an occasion that resulted in her taking on this task. Thanked for all she has accomplished, Joan in turn thanked everyone for their efforts
