To the Editor:
The Sisters, Faithful Companions of Jesus of the Province of the Americas, request your prayerful support as they gather for their Provincial Chapter from January 29-February 5 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The Sisters will be reflecting upon their past five years on mission and preparing for the future.
This international community was founded in Amiens, France, in 1820. The year 2008 marks the 150th anniversary of the death of their foundress, Marie Madeleine D’Houet and the 125th anniversary of their arrival in Canada, from which they expanded to the United States and, more recently, Argentina, Bolivia and Mexico.
