This week will be the start of our last mission drive of the year in support of the Holy Names House of Peace directed by the 2015 Ignatian Challenge Award winner, Sister Lesley Sacouman, SNJM. Holy Names House of Peace provides a safe home for women in transition, a sacred place for prayer and reflection space for organizations promoting justice, peace and understanding. Please see the attached letter detailing this mission dive as well as some information regarding the House of Peace.
There is a very good video available that has been put together by the M&W mission drive team interviewing Sr. Sacouman on the inception of the House of Peace and some of the challenges they face today: https://vimeo.com/162071496 . The House of Peace also has a website that contains more information on their mission http://www.houseofpeace.ca/ .
Cash and cheques donation can be brought in to the school with your sons and given to their respective MGM group tins. Online donations can be made on the St. Paul’s website: https://www.stpauls.mb.ca/giving/giving_form/ . Please choose ‘Mission Drive’ from the ‘Direct my gift to’ drop-down menu. Both online and cheque donations $20.00 and over will receive a charitable gift receipt.
