Last week, the Marie Menard Oral History Committee (MMC) gathered in the Archival Center for their summer meeting. Named for the Community’s first historian, Sister Marie Menard, the MMC was created in 1999 to gather the treasured stories of our Sisters’ lives. It is our privilege to share with you many of these stories on the SCN website. Each story is unique and we strive to present them as they are told in their entirety whether they be brief or extensive. We encourage you to read them as you are able.
Published MMC interviews can be viewed here: https://scnfamily.org/tag/marie-menard/
We invite you to read, enjoy, and learn more about these amazing women and pray with us the Marie Menard prayer.
Marie Menard Prayer
Loving God, through the intercession of Marie Menard we ask that You guide us on our journey as we begin our sacred walk into unexplored areas of SCN history. Marie Menard beckons us to continue her work of gathering the memories of moments of life and service that reside in the hearts of our Sisters. May you bring to light all that is beautiful and true in SCN life.
Marie, may your devotion to this task urge us on,
May your humility and simplicity always guide us,
May your great desire for preserving our treasured history
become the inspiration for generations to come.
