End of the year activity of le Comité vert!

Maura McGrath

True to our mandate, on Wednesday, June 29th, the members of Comité vert enjoyed un vrai pique-nique écologique to mark the end of the year.

Nourished by delicious tamales made by Carmen, one of the members of the committee,  we then walked over to Dawson College where Chris Adam welcomed us. Chris, who is the heart and soul of the Living Campus Project at Dawson, facilitated the next part of our activity. With passion and energy he spoke of education at Dawson, care for the students and all creation. We then spent a few moments in the Peace Garden which made our hour together very special.

One cannot help but ponder… when the Congregation had to leave its former mother house, in the mid-eighties, the sisters could not have imagined the calibre of the professors and students who would come after them to educate and be educated within its former walls. The CND sisters are very happy to see that Dawson College perpetuates the Congregations values: education, care for the Earth. Enjoying our end of the year event seemed most fitting.
