Feast of St. Francis, Montreal, 4/10/2012

At the Pavillon St-Joseph, we had a wonderful celebration of the Feast of St. Francis.  We had a beautiful sung Mass, a very good dinner in the cafeteria and a magnificent afternoon in the main hall. 

We were 54 Sisters from the three Franciscan Communities living in the Pavillon, some MFIC from the Ste. Marie local circle, and some Sisters from two other communities: the Little Daughters of St. Francis and the Franciscan Oblates of St. Joseph, and of course ourselves the MFICs.  The entertainment was led by the Superior General of the Little Daughters of St. Francis.  And Sr. Claire Vanier, the superior of the house, came to offer us a very good afternoon tea.  I think it was the most beautiful day since I arrived here at Pavillon St. Joseph.
