Fontbonne Ministries

December Reflections

December has some important dates: December 6 is National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in Canada. And December 10 is the anniversary of the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

National Housing Day

I find it appropriate that National Housing Day is on November 22, the day that we celebrate Mother St. John Fontbonne, the re-foundress of the Sisters of St. Joseph, who had a deep commitment to loving the dear neighbour. 

Sister Gwen Smith on Food Security

Since 1992, the United Nations has recognized October 17 as the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, a day to reflect upon poverty and promote awareness of how it affects others. 

Faith Connections Ministry Update

The past few months at Faith Connections have been nothing short of exciting and memorable. We organized five Speak Up sessions which took place from September to November last year in preparation for this year’s Synod on Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment. 

Springs of Hope: This is Us

The latest edition of Springs of Hope is now available. This issue, titled "This is Us," explores how each of the six Fontbonne Ministries offer inclusion and the chance for people to share their gifts.
