Speaking about Mother Marie-Rose and the SNJM’s!

The foundress of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM) is the subject of the article “Gens de Parole”, in the most recent issue of the magazine 'Parabole', which is published by the “Société catholique de la Bible” (Socabi) (Canadian Bible Society).

In the article written by Sister Simone Perras, we discover and rediscover, with pleasure, Blessed Mother Marie-Rose’s journey of commitment. At the same time, we are reminded of the journey undertaken by the Congregation, founded in the province of Quebec, and which quickly became a Congregation of international scope (United States, Lesotho, Peru and Brazil). Let it be noted that the SNJM Sisters are also in the Canadian Provinces of Ontario and Manitoba.

The article was published in the September 2016 issue, on pages 21-22.
