This year, we are celebrating the 15th Anniversary of the founding of Fontbonne Ministries. In our current issue of the Springs of Hope newsletter, we share lots of pictures and quotes from each Ministry Director.
Wesley Mimico United Church: Cross Communication, September-October 2014 newsletter — At the annual WMUC Mission and Outreach Service last March, we welcomed three visitors from Village Mosaic, a community centre for seniors at 2794 Lakeshore Blvd West in New Toronto, sponsored and sustained by Fontbonne Ministries, Sisters of St. Joseph, Toronto.
For the fifth year in a row, Village Mosaic has been awarded a certificate of nomination as a GEM of the Lakeshore in Etobicoke. This year, this Fontbonne Ministries program was one of 16 organizations who won an engraved crystal shield for being voted the best in their category. Our award was “Best in Culture & Recreation” in south Etobicoke.
On May 4, 2014, over 80 people attended the Fontbonne Ministries Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon at St. Paul's Basilica Parish Hall. In a beautiful parish hall decorated with colourful balloons and flowers, Fontbonne Ministries volunteers gathered with staff and Sisters. Together, they enjoyed a meal and celebrated the volunteers' contributions to different Fontbonne Ministries programs.
During the event, Sister Thérèse Meunier voiced her gratitude to Fontbonne volunteers.
