150 Ways Fontbonne Ministries Makes a Difference

The year 2017 marked our country’s 150th anniversary. We were blessed to have the opportunity to highlight and celebrate attributes that distinguish Canada and our citizens around the world: kindness, compassion, innovation, diversity, inclusion, and creativity.  These are attributes shared by those involved with Fontbonne Ministries. Every volunteer, donor, staff person, partner and participant truly makes a difference with their gifts. 

Through your affiliation with Fontbonne Ministries, you have helped many Canadians: People wanting to deepen their spirituality; feeding those who are hungry; sheltering women in need of housing; creating warm environments for those who are lonely, and encouraging creativity in people of all ages. Overall, you helped to create community for those seeking to belong. 

Our six ministries—In Good Company, Studio on the Hill, Faith Connections, Fontbonne Place, Village Mosaic and Mustard Seed—were created in order to address the societal issues of the day, including: food insecurity, spiritual hunger, homelessness and isolation. Now, almost two decades later, Sisters, staff, volunteers and community collaborators continue to keep their “ears to the ground” in order to respond to the needs of today. Work remains to be done, yes, but collectively, with your help, Fontbonne Ministries continues to evolve and to welcome everyone without distinction. 

I am very pleased to share our 2016–17 Annual Report which illustrates 150 ways in which Fontbonne Ministries contributes to the well-being of its communities and neighbourhoods. Thank you for your commitment, caring and compassion and for helping to shape the next 150 years of our country.

Fontbonne Ministries continues, with the Sisters, their mission of reflecting the love of God and neighbour.
