A newness for this year, beginning on Sunday 27 June, you will be able to buy the booklet Marguerite d’Youville Prayers and Spirituality. It is a collection of prayers recited by Marguerite and her companions, such as the ever relevant Invocations to the Eternal Father and it also contains new prayers composed by Sr Rose-Alma Lemire, SGM.
Beautifully illustrated by Fabiola Roy, it was accomplished by the Committee of the Friends of Saint Marguerite d’Youville, in close collaboration with the community of the Grey Nuns of Montreal. You can purchase a copy in the Sanctuary for a cost of 5 $.
«This is an important event for the Sanctuary. An opportunity for us to show how much the work of Marguerite d’Youville is alive and well. We invite you pray at her Tomb and to visit the Sanctuary to learn more about this woman with a heart of gold. She welcomed the homeless, the abandoned, the orphans and she cared for the sick regardless of race», affirms the Rector of the Basilica, Father Mario Desrosiers.
