Village Mosaic

Village Mosaic receives Gem of the Lakeshore award

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.

Celebrating Fontbonne Ministries Volunteers

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.

Village Mosaic: Celebrating Five Years

On February 12, 2014, Fontbonne Ministries' Village Mosaic celebrated five years of offering a gathering place on Lake Shore West for seniors. Back in January 2009, Sisters Anne Marie Marrin, Conrad Lauber and Elaine Guidinger arrived at 2794 Lake Shore Boulevard West. Guided by a needs survey and applying all their rich experiences and skills, they founded Village Mosaic, with the participants’ help. “The seniors guided us in the evolution of this program,” said Ministry Director Sister Conrad.

Introducing the Village Mosaic Model

On Sunday, March 2, Sister Conrad Lauber, Ministry Director of Village Mosaic (pictured right) and Leanne Kloppenborg, Administrator, Fontbonne Ministries, were invited by Reverend Dr. Paul Shepherd, pastor of Wesley Mimico United Church to speak about Village Mosaic at their ‘Mission and Service' Sunday service.
