by: Louise Finn, CND
Sr. Louise Finn's insightful and delightful book, based on thorough research, tells the story of Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys who left her home as a young single woman to join other committed lay persons in New France (present-day Canada)
At a time when women religious were cloistered, she dreamed of a new way of being Church. The "seed" that God planted in her heart is now the Congregation of Notre Dame, still flourishing in the U.S., Canada, Central America, France, Japan and Africa. Saint Marguerite's remarkable adventure will expand your vision of her world-and our own!
