2020 Marks the 400th Anniversary of the Birth of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys

Submitted by Associate Marjorie Allison-Ross

In Visitation Province, we’ve been celebrating this special occasion since April 17, 2019 so we already have many beautiful memories. I’ve been blessed to walk in Marguerite Bourgeoys’s footsteps in her native Troyes, France in September 2019 during the 400th Anniversary Pilgrimage to Troyes and in her adopted home of Ville-Marie (Montreal) in July 2016 during the 35th Anniversary of Associate Relationship Pilgrimage to Montreal.
