An FMM on the TV Show Format Familial
January 16 2019
Sr. Aline Packenham participated on one of the episode of Format familial, televised on Wednesday, January 16 2019 at 7:30 pm. This weekly half-hour program offers families an overview of subjects that concern them through a series of interviews, practical advice, chronics, and surprising celebrity revelations. During the segment #SANSFILTRE -Les religions, two children asked questions on our insignia, God's presence, our renunciations, and other religions. Sr Aline reminded us of the missionary vocation of religions that "all have something very good and the important element between all of them is love, sharing, and collaboration."

Diocesan Multicultural Gathering
January 13 2019
Our sisters of Blessed Mary of the Passion convent in Quebec City partook in this annual gathering with Archbishop Gérald Cyprien Lacroix at the beginning of this year. The two auxiliary bishops with several priests and deacons were also present. Government representatives also replied to the invitation. It was quite a crowded affair. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by volunteers who handed out small flags with the inscription Together, Let Us Build The Earth... Our Common Home. African, Latino, and Vietnamese choirs led the congregation in song during the mass. We felt we belong to God's huge intercultural family with its specific colours according to the countries of origin. Joy overflowed. After the eucharistic celebration, we were invited in the parish hall where we got a chance to greet everyone. This gathering plunged us again in our missionary vocation, reminding us of article 3 of our Constitutions: The Christ who we contemplate sends us out to our brothers and sisters in whom we discover his hidden presence. And our brothers and sisters send us back to the contemplation of Christ.

Celebrates Sister Mariette Gagnon
End of the school year 2017-2018
The staff and teachers of Mgr Marcoux Centre, a community centre of Maizerets in Limoilou, organized a celebration for Sr. Mariette Gagnon in thanksgiving for her 8 years as a volunteer in the French Immersion workshops for immigrants from various countries. Congratulations Sr. Mariette and thank you for sharing your impressions. "I enjoyed meeting these immigrants. They gave me so much and it was a pleasure to offer my time. I also appreciated working with the other volunteers, who for the most part were retired teachers. We became good friends. My reward for volunteering is to know that I am welcomed into a big family. I thank God for allowing me to live this experience."
