During 2021 the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart want you to join with us in thanking God for our 100 years as a religious congregation. At this significant moment in our history, we acknowledge and thank also those who passed along to us the charism of St. Marguerite d’Youville, the Grey Nuns, Sisters of Charity of Montreal and the Grey Nuns of the Cross of Ottawa.
These 100 years have been filled with an abundance of opportunities to serve God’s people with compassion and love. In spite of hardships, the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart persevered in their desire to help all those in need, especially the forgotten and underserved, in the spirit of St. Marguerite d’Youville. In spite of difficult times, the sisters found new and resourceful ways to meet the emerging needs of that decade.
Although we would like to see and celebrate with each of you who have traveled through these experiences with us, the events of our time call for a different kind of celebration. During 2021, in recognition of our 100 years of God’s grace to the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart, we shall share some of our abundant blessings with the poor and the hungry of our times as we believe St. Marguerite would want us to do.
Please pray with us in gratitude for the love and guidance of Divine Providence through these years and for the many blessings which we continue to receive.
Joyfully in the Sacred Heart,
Sister Denise Roche, GNSH
