Fontbonne Ministries: Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon

On April 24, over 80 people attended Fontbonne Ministries' annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon. Volunteers, staff and Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto assembled at the Famous People Players dining hall and theatre to enjoy socializing, an afternoon meal and a variety of musical performances from puppets and their puppeteers.

Visiting the Birthplace of the Sisters of St. Joseph

From the Fall 2015 issue of Springs of Hope:
As part of an ongoing pilot formation project, the Leadership Team sent some of their lay staff this past October (2015) to a Mission Effectiveness Workshop in Le Puy-en-Velay, France, where the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph was founded in 1650. 
 
Including me, there were 18 lay staff present from Canada, the United States and Brazil with two facilitators and one Portuguese interpreter.

Fontbonne Place: An Unexpected Community

From the Fall 2015 issue of Springs of Hope:
Two years ago, Margo stood outside one of the 18 rent-geared-to-income apartments at Fontbonne Place. She expected her new home to consist of a single room. But Margot was astonished to find her apartment held a bedroom, living room and kitchen. 
 
“I thought the layout was so clever,” says Margo, describing how each of these three areas has two entrances.
