Close to 150 people attended the reunion and celebration of gratitude for the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM), on August 26, at Résidence Sainte-Émélie, in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve districts. For many of those who participated, it was an opportunity to reconnect with the Sisters and to share memories.
One participant living in the area did not want to miss this occasion for ‘all the money in the world’. "The Sisters, who are a part of our history and our neighborhood, played an important role here.”
The emotion was palpable in the corridors and the rooms or small salons where people took time to converse. Numerous groups formed as guests arrived. At the end of the afternoon, many were reluctant to leave.
