Presently we are 10 “Agents of Development” (Daughters of Wisdom) from different Entities, responsible for working in collaboration with the Development Office of the Congregation.

These works are in the service of the poorest in our societies. This formation session was held in Rome at the General House, May 23 to 27, 2016.
Sister Isabelle Retailleau, General Councilor, Sister Anne-Marie Beaudoin, Treasurer General, both members of the Development Office and Sister Siobhán Boyle, Directress of this Office, animated the session with competence and dynamism.

As we were aware of our responsibility and wanted to be able to fulfill our mission, we fully entered the proposals and exercises designed to empower us to…
With these goals in mind, we did not experience the diversity of languages as a barrier to communication. In fact the exercise opened our hearts to the international aspect of our service!
At the end of the session, Sr. Louise Madore, Superior General sent each one of us to our specific mission. We received a special blessing to become really bearer of hope for the poor and agents of communion with those who share the same concern.
Confident and enthusiastic, we went back to our Entities, strengthened in our mission for development in a world where poor and rich rub shoulders.
