Congratulations to the SNJM Jubilarians of Quebec 2024!

Return to news

Twenty Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM) in Quebec are celebrating their 60th, 70th, 75th or 80th anniversary of religious life this year, along with two associates who are marking their 25th anniversary of commitment.

The SNJMs of Quebec organize an annual jubilee celebration to recognize and thank the Sisters and associates for their gifts and their ministries.  The festive event is planned for September 13 at Maison Jésus-Marie (MJM). Details to follow.   

In the meantime, take a look at the list of jubilarians and take the opportunity to send them a word of gratitude, say hello when you cross their path and, why not, take a moment to meet them and talk about the richness of their lives.

“Gratitude is the music of the soul.” – Marie-Antoinette Grégoire-Coupal

In his message to religious women and men on the World Day of Consecrated Life this year, Pope Francis emphasized:

“Brothers and Sisters, waiting for God is also important for us, for our faith journey. Every day the Lord visits us, speaks to us, reveals himself in unexpected ways and, at the end of life and time, he will come. He himself exhorts us to stay awake, to be vigilant, to persevere in waiting. Indeed, the worst thing that can happen to us is to let “our spirit doze off”, to let the heart fall sleep, to anesthetize the soul, to lock hope away in the dark corners of disappointment and resignation.”
