We bid our fraternal farewell to Sister Cecile Lanovaz, Presentation of Mary.  Sister arrived in Canada from The Gambia, Africa.  She has been there for 52 years; doing pastoral work.  While in her mission, her african zeal for Africa has not stopped, she continues to draw many people closer to Jesus as she spreads the good News in her milieu, reaching to those who desperatally needs Jesus. 

Before she left Canada, she spent some time with her family surrounding the areas of Duck Lake, Sask.  She had the opportunity to share her life, spirituality and her missionary work with them and also with us.  We were enriched by her words of wisdom by sharing the culture of the Africans.

We joyfully give praise to the Lord for her presence in our midst during these months with us.

We wish her a safe return home to The Gambia and to continue to evangelize and spread the charism of Mother Rivier and spread the Word of God “to make Jesus Christ known and loved everywhere”.  We wish you happiness and much success in your new mission!
