They Left Us in 2023

Return to news

The year 2023 was marked by the deaths of 16 Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM) from Quebec.

In shadow or in light, these Sisters, each in their own way, were committed, like their foundress, to living the SNJM mission until their last breath. They constantly strived to lead fruitful, professional and religious lives.

Women with diverse backgrounds who made an impact on their own families, workplaces and volunteer settings.

Today, we pay tribute to them in the spirit of this quote from Jean D’Ormesson:

“There is something stronger than death,

it is the presence of the absent in the memory of the living.”

A great way to remember the committed journey of these Sisters is by consulting the In Memory section on our website, which briefly retraces a few key elements of their life.
