The following is an extract from what she said.
“Ms Phyllis Douillard is Sister of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary. Her commitment began several years ago and she has shared much of her time, energy and knowledge with several groups such as the Circles of Support and Accountability for released sex offenders, Restorative Justice Groups and Relais Famille, a support group for families of prisoners.
She plays an important role in the process of social rehabilitation of offenders, members of their familiesand victims. Having shown great leadership in recruiting volunteers, Ms Douillard is known for her outstanding involvement. The devotedness she shows towards our clientele clearly reveals the values she communicates to others.”
Congratulations Phyllis! Your ministry with ex-prisoners who are undergoing rehabilitation is precious and coincides with Canada’s claim that one must always have a positive attitude towards the reintegration of these men who ask to be supported when they leave prison.
