Advent Project at Holy Name of Mary College School in Mississauga, Canada

14 Dec

On Thursday, December 13, we were invited to Holy Name College School in Mississauga, Canada. The school participated in our Advent Project and collected over 2,000 toiletries for those still in Tent cities in Haiti. They will deliver the items to Lodi, NJ to be loaded in the container being sent to Haiti next week.

We met with the whole school community to share about the Felician mission in Haiti. After the presentation three faculty members want to come in the summer to volunteer in our mission. In the evening we were invited to lead the prayer before the annual Christmas concert. Today, together with some other Felician SIsters, we participated in the Advent School Mass. Fr. James, an Oblate of St. Francis de Sales, who celebrated the Mass works with an organization that has an orphanage in Jacmel. Small world, eh?
