Celebrating the 400th Anniversary of Marguerite Bourgeoys in the East Kootenay’s

Cranbrook associates and a number of parishioners enjoyed an evening presentation by Sr. Norma Gallant, CND. Sr. Norma journeyed from Trail to be with us and she spoke lovingly and passionately about the life and history of Marguerite all the way from Troyes, France to the present-day reality of our time and place in Western Canada. Of interest to everyone was the call of Marguerite Bourgeoys to go where she was needed often in the face of institutional opposition. The call of the Sisters of the Congregation de Notre-Dame to go to the peripheries today is the same call that Marguerite heard and responded to in her time. The role of the associates and their relationship to the call and mission of the larger Congregation de Notre-Dame was shared and celebrated as well.

Our Commitment to Interculturality...

We believe that God desires us to live with others in ways that are respectful and mutually empowering.

These are the principles of interculturality that guide our way forward:

• Build a home where all can feel comfortable and accepted

• Learn to appreciate and celebrate our many differences

• Develop an inclusive model of thinking that takes into consideration the many different truths that we hold

Our commitment to interculturality requires that we live a path of constant conversion.
