Honour and Respect Our Common Home by Taking Concrete Action

Last Tuesday, the sisters and lay employees of the mother house of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame assembled to highlight and celebrate the efforts made thus far to diminish the ecological footprint of the house.

In fact, since 2014, words have been put into action and the mother house has been taking concrete steps to become “green”: evaluating and improving the energy efficiency of the heating system; composting; switching to biodegradable cleaning products and fair trade coffee, etc.

I can’t believe it, I WON … says Sr. Ruth!!!!!!

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Pictured is Sister Ruth Penny, after she won at Wii Bowling, a game played using the computer. Once a month, at Providence Mother House a Wii Bowling tournament takes place. Under the expert tutelage of Christine, one of our Activity organizers, six of us gather for a couple of hours of bowling. Amidst cheers and moans, laughter and applause each one tries her best to knock down all the pins to achieve a strike or at least a spare for her efforts. A specially designed trophy is presented to the winning team along with “Tuck Bucks” worth $1.00 at the in-house Tuck Shop. Who says we seniors can’t have fun?
