A saintly feast day

Standard-Freeholder (Cornwall) - - FAITH - JOAN LEVY EARLE

To­day is the feast day of St. Mar­guerite Bour­geoys, who was can­on­ized in 1982. She came to Canada from France and by 1653 had founded the Notre Dame Sis­ters. A pi­o­neer in Catholic ed­u­ca­tion, she spent much time in Montreal work­ing with chil­dren from Indige­nous fam­i­lies. Let us per­se­vere in our own vo­ca­tions, pray­ing for God’s help when we need it.
