Diocese of Victoria
Bishop Gary recently presented two awards - the Blessed Marie Anne Blondin Bursary to Michaela Pomponio, and the Char Deslippe Memorial Award to Tanya Taft. In non-Covid times, these awards are celebrated at diocesan gatherings, but this ceremony was a quiet one, witnessed by only a few. Nonetheless, it’s heartwarming to know that two amazing women were recognized for their faithful service. Michaela and Tanya have answered the call to serve, following in the footsteps of the two women for whom these awards are named.

As we celebrate the Feast of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys (Foundress of the Congregation of Notre Dame), the first female saint of Canada, we remember her words “prayer ought to carry over into our thoughts, our words, and our actions”. We remain grateful for the Religious Communities and lay women in our Diocese who have, and continue, to serve and radiate the light of Christ in our midst.
