Sister Hélène Gagnon, a pillar of the community!

Continuing the mission of Mother St. Louis, Sr. Hélène Gagnon lives only for her neighbour, and has for decades worked with various organizations: for the very poor, single mothers, drug addicts, alcoholics, seniors in palliative care. She has without fail accompanied the most vulnerable; has counselled them, linked them up to be of mutual assistance.

For her outstanding volunteer involvement, Sr. Hélène Gagnon received the Lt. Governor’s Medal of the Province of Quebec on May 21, 2017.

Père Éternel House in Vannes (France)

Work on the expansion has begun! The façade will be preserved; this work is quite a technological feat. Once completed, the building will have 3 floors and will be much larger.

The future complex will host the Carmelites who have been sharing our home since 2013 as well as the congregational administrative personnel and offices such as the secretary’s and treasurer’s, the archives and several meeting rooms.

Madame Louise Elisabeth Molé, the pride of Vannes!

Following her beatification end-May of 2012, her veneration continues to spread!

And most recently on Thursday May 25th, the 5th anniversary of her beatification was celebrated by Father Henry de Villefranche, a descendant of the Foundress.

Visits are to her tomb are on the rise and the most appropriate means are implemented to welcome visitors who come to pray through her intercession and leave their prayer requests in the urn provided.

Thanks to you, Mme Molé continues her work…

Sharing an inheritance

 

Being committed to the charism of the Sisters of Charity of St. Louis, incites me to know Mother Saint-Louis better.  She is a source of inspiration, a model of courage, perseverance, faith and charity towards the downs and outs.   She invites me to testify with deeds while remaining available to welcome others and listen without judgement or prejudice, respecting their dignity and limitations. At work, in my contacts or volunteering, Mother Saint-Louis invites me to give of my best and more.

 

Mother Saint-Louis lived through difficult times during the Revolution; she knew poverty and death so she can help us understand that even in the darkest moments we are never alone… God is always there.  She taught me to discover that God’s plans are not always what we expect; to say yes to them nurtures and enriches our lives. 

 

Walking in her footsteps, I own this inheritance and share it. Our present world where individualism is rampant needs these values: cut off from others, many people live isolation under various guises.  Each day, I see occasions to reach out to others. Through her unconditional yes, Mother Saint-Louis guides my steps and actions.  I wish to make Mother Saint-Louis’ values known so as to create a better world:

 

“Everything is important, when it is done in love.”
