Making St. Marguerite known

Della Gaudet, CND

My brother, home for Thanksgiving, is a volunteer at two veterans' hospitals in Toronto. He says many of those men pray to a woman whose name is St Marguerite and he asked me if I knew anything about her. So the whole family at Thanksgiving got a mini version of her story. I then sent to those men the prayer card for the sick (revised in 2012). Here, at Andrews, 35 Marguerite Bourgeoys charm bracelets have been purchased (cost $10) to give to relatives and friends. There are 20 charms on the bracelet, each of which depicts an aspect of Marguerite's life. The bracelets come with a typed account of her life story. All proceeds go to our communities in Central America. These bracelets could be a welcome teacher-aid for catechists who wish to share the story of Marguerite with their students.
