Rooted in Jesus Christ, Let Us Cultivate Love and Compassion

Press Release

Montreal, 15 June, 2016

Sisters of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame de Montréal coming from eight countries will gather in General Chapter this summer in Cornwall, Ontario, from August 11 to 29, 2016. In the course of this meeting, they will discuss major orientations that will set the direction of the Congregation for the next five years, and they will elect a new leadership team.

This is the Congregation’s 97th General Chapter since it was founded by Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys in 1698. This event is a high point in the life of the community, a time in which the delegates representing all sisters of the Congregation reflect on the mission, and decide how to best continue to pursue the ministry of liberating education in today’s world. Thus, for over 300 years, Les Sœurs de la Congrégation de Notre-Dame, faithfully rooted in the charism of their foundress, adapt to new realities in order to meet the needs of the Church and society.

Segments of this assembly will be broadcast via live streaming at on August 12, 13, 15, 18, 21, 27 and 29. For information on broadcast times, visit our website at and follow us on social media.
