Fontbonne Ministries Celebrates its Volunteers

Fontbonne Ministries celebrated volunteers with a May 19, 2010 gathering at Mustard Seed that combined warm hospitality, a chance to chat, some tempting sweets and a clown prone to ‘random acts of kindness' pictured at right with Administrator Leanne Kloppenborg.

Sister Margaret Myatt welcomed volunteers and quoted a relevant passage from the Sisters' constitution: "Our Congregation received the name of St. Joseph so that following his example we will be present to others with loving attention and cordial charity."

Fontbonne Ministries Introduces New Logo

This November, Fontbonne Ministries is pleased to launch its new logo!

Joan Breech, Administrator of Fontbonne Ministries, explains,

“All of our activities are directed towards achieving our vision – to be a sustainable expression of the mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto in social ministry. One of those activities has been to develop a corporate logo, a visual and visible symbol that distinguishes Fontbonne Ministries from other organizations and helps to define its identity.  

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
