Volunteers as Committed as Ever

Return to news

Many stimulating meetings were held during the fall of 2021. Among these was the meeting of volunteers (coopérantes) with the members of the SNJM Quebec Provincial Leadership Team, who were happy to respond to the invitation extended to them by the volunteers.

This first meeting between the two groups allowed them to get to know each other better and to become more aware of their various activities and challenges.

After having presented their functioning since their beginnings in 2006 and having noted their four common values: environment, interdependence, justice and solidarity with women, the group of ten volunteers had the opportunity to learn more about the recent General Chapter.

As Ms. Micheline Jobin emphasized, “This allowed us to understand the direction that the community is taking, thus helping us to stay connected with the community… and to put our focus, too, on responding to the Call of Our Lives, in the spirit of Mother Marie-Rose.”

The volunteers experienced this meeting, held at the Congregational House, as a moment of sheer delight that enabled them to put their lives on hold as they met “in an inspirational setting, with religious who perpetuate the work of Mother Marie-Rose.”
