Common Mission

Representatives of Daughters of Wisdom of North America met in November in Montreal, Canada, to plan for a common mission focus for the Daughters of Wisdom of Canada and the United States.  

The focus is based on the goals set at the International General Chapter which was held in Rome, July 2012. These encouraged Daughters of Wisdom to "go beyond the boundaries of their respective countries" and "listen to the cries of the universe and of the poor."

Planning committee members were (left to right), Violaine Gagnon (Montreal, Canada), Rosemarie Greco (CT, USA), Claudette Belanger (Ottowa, Canada), and Evelyn Eckhardt (NY, USA).
