Studio on the Hill

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

Exhibit Sale Brings Many Visitors

Between Nov. 26 - 28, 2004, Studio on the Hill was transformed from a pottery studio into an elegant exhibit and sale area, where 16 artists displayed and offered their creations for sale. Many came to both look and buy.

This was the studio's second transformation this year: in August the gray walls were painted burgundy, teal and pixie wing pink.

Participation in the Empty Bowl Project

Sister Helen Kluke and students at the Studio on the Hill participated in the Empty Bowl project in May 2004, donating 57 soup bowls. This event, sponsored by the Gardiner Museum, assists the hungry and homeless in Toronto through the Anishnawbe Street Patrol program. The bowls represent a donation of $2,280 raised from tickets sold for the event.
