With the theme “Let’s sing to life” the traditional celebration of the birthdays took place at the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM). The event, held on February 18th at Maison Jésus-Marie, brought together the Sisters and Associates of the Congregation.
The tone was set upon arrival at the entrance. The welcome by three students from Collège Durocher-Saint-Lambert, the decoration with balloons and the presence of so many Sisters were an invitation to joy and sharing.
Bouquets of songs
On the program for the celebration three bouquets of songs were presented: songs of joy, enthusiasm, color, vitality and songs known since childhood. Each bouquet included melodies in keeping with the theme whether it was about nature, arts and culture or relationships.
Each theme was introduced by a short commentary given by the committee in charge of preparing the celebration and an invitation to a short discussion among those present.
