Welcome

Founded by six alumnae in 1996, our Association has currently grown to 172 members. Our main objective is to promote fellowship among former students. In keeping with the Maryknoll spirit of giving and sharing, we raise funds for our retired Maryknoll Sisters; volunteer and participate in a variety of charitable causes and organizations.

MARYKNOLL WORLDWIDE REUNION IX – DVD Presentation

Your Vancouver Maryknollers are pleased to present this DVD which depicts the Maryknoll Worldwide Reunion IX as experienced and enjoyed by all those who attended the reunion. The DVD was directed and produced by Helen Wong Cheng (MCS grad 1964) with technical support from the son of Lily Shek Chan (MCS grad 1964).

The DVD is a recorded live presentation with no special effects whatsoever. The video clips, the music, the photos, and so on and so forth, are all original takes. So sit back, relax and enjoy the cruise reunion!

By the way, 2017 was the Centennial Year of the Apparitions of Our Lady in Fatima, Portugal and we honoured Our Lady of Fatima at the reunion. The statue that you see in the video is a 100th anniversary statue of Our Lady specially ordered for the reunion – it was made in Fatima, Portugal; it was blessed by Emeritus Bishop David Monroe to mark the solemn opening of the reunion and was present at all the Masses; at the farewell gathering of the reunion, it was presented to our Maryknoll Sisters to be kept in a place of honour at the Motherhouse.

sincerely,

Fernanda Antonia de Pinna Ho (MCS grad 1971), Chair








Christmas Letter 2017 from Sr. Jeanne Houlihan

Dear Maryknollers,

As we pause to reflect on the Birth of Jesus, we are truly humbled that God assumes humanity for each of us.Just as three wise men followed a star, each of us is following a star that promises LIFE within and beyond us. The world, including the USA, seems to be falling apart. In some places it is.We do not despair or give up because a reading of Scripture demonstrates that the life 2000 years ago is not very different from today's messy world except Jesus is
present and we have HOPE...

Christmas Letter 2016 from Sr. Jeanne Houlihan

Dear Maryknollers,

Is the world worse today than yesteryear?  Sometimes it may seem that way but a reading of the Old Testament finds Syria in serious trouble just like today.  The difference is in the planes, tanks, guns and ammunition, which means more people killed, homeless, abandoned. Power and greed were dominant and still are. The promise of the Messiah would bring justice and peace.  This is the HOPE and I BELIEVE. Why?  Everywhere you see small groups gathering to bring about justice and peace...

Health Compliant Bathroom Project (HCBP) Successful Completion – 2015

An email from Sister Jeanne dated November 7, 2015:

".... I appreciate how patient the former students and teachers and friends have been about the bathrooms. They were finally completed and in full use. The upgrade and refurbishing has made such a difference for the Sisters who live on Main 3. These Sisters have various old age conditions as you probably can understand. We seem to be living into the 90s and even the 100s. Sister Ann Carol and Margaret Shepherd from MCS and MSS are both on this floor. Sister Mary Lou Teufel from MSS is also on this floor. Thus, you get many prayers of gratitude. One day just after the bathroom near Ann Carol I found her sitting on her walker, reading a book and waiting for the wash machine to finish. I did not have a camera but it was so appropriate. Main III Sisters can if they are able do their laundry. Washing machine and dryer was part of refurbishing.

Once again Thank YOU.

Sister Jeanne"
