Collaboration Enhances the Work of Holy Childhood in Vancouver

The Archdiocese of Vancouver has a long history of missionary involvement. It was our former Archbishop William Duke who, in 1933, established the Holy Childhood Association in English speaking Canada to encourage young children to take an active part in the mission activity of the Church by learning about, praying for and sharing with needy children around the world.

Awards for Sister Sheila

Awards are raining on Sr. Sheila O'Connor. In recognition of her 25 years of ministry there, Lakeridge Health gave her a beautiful clock with a plaque that reads:

"Sr. Sheila brought hope to so many. Chaplaincy."

The hospital system also presented her with a twenty-five-year service pin and a "huge cake shaped like a hockey rink - they know I love hockey," said Sr. Sheila.
