Teaching Religion to the Youngest Among Us

Sr. Joan Brennan, CND, needs to apply all her 60+ years of experience as an educator when teaching religion to three and four-year olds. Yes, that’s three and four-year old preschoolers at Notre Dame Academy in Staten Island, NY.

New parish names in New Brunswick

In the Diocese of Saint John N.B. churches are being combined to form new parishes with new names. Parishioners were invited to suggest names. The new parish in the Miramichi area (Newcastle side) is now named Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys Parish. Local churches are designated “worship sites” within the large (new) parish structure; they will maintain their “church name” for now. Our Congrégation de Notre-Dame associates and friends were very active in promoting Saint Marguerite. It is appropriate that the Miramichi area where the Sisters of the Congregation worked for over 100 years receive this honor. Sisters and associates familiar with the Miramichi are very pleased, as are former students and friends of the sisters.

Associates Sharon DiFruscia, Donna Quelch and Charles Taker were on hand to talk about Associate Relationship to those who called by our booth.
