OK Clean Water Celebrates Another Successful Year with Ottawa Catholic Schools!

The OK Clean Water Project is most grateful to the Ottawa Catholic Schools who have supported our water project in Kumbo, Cameroon again in the school year 2014-2015. This year twenty-five schools brought in an amazing $31,264.50! The schools were given a power point presentation including photos, commentary and statistics on the number of villages, pipes, storage tanks, schools and health clinics served by the project. The students and teachers were most creative in their fundraising engaging in such activities as walk-a-thons, read-a-thons, spirit days, coin lines, bake sales, chores at home and other interesting activities to raise money for OK Clean Water Project.

Recognizing the Sisters’ Legacy and Dedication in a Big Way

Within the Demystifying Art lecture series at the Stewart Hall Art Gallery in Pointe-Claire, a talk entitled Public Art featuring artist Shelley Miller and landscape architect Eileen Finn – both Montreal-based – will be held on June 3. During this event, visitors will have the opportunity to learn about their truly imaginative and highly significant collaborative project – the creation of a new public sculpture entitled Impression – commissioned by the City of Pointe-Claire, to honour the Sisters of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame (CND) who occupied the convent near St-Joachim Church and the 300 year-old wind-mill along the shores of Lake St-Louis for over two centuries.

June is Torture Awareness Month.  I invite you to take 5 minutes to watch the following op ed: "Why solitary confinement is a form of modern-day torture".
