Dear Friends and volunteers of Marian Centre,

                It has been quite a while since you have heard from us. After our major renovations last year, we are now settled into our ‘new’ refurbished building. It was a major work as you can imagine. There are just a few jobs that have to be completed, such as the parging of the exterior walls and to restore some of the landscaping around the building.  We are very grateful for the support received from many of you in so many ways during this renovation.

                We re-opened our doors last December and returned to our normal and privileged life of service. Yet, more changes have come our way. Hugo Isaza, our director, has been assigned to our house in Edmonton to be co-director. Charlie Cavanaugh, who has been here for 5 years, has been asked to be the director of this house. And finally, we have a new man on staff, Peter Anselm, who comes to us from our main centre in Combermere (Ontario). Peter is with us already and Hugo will be heading off to Edmonton in mid-July.

                Before our annual August closing, we would like to extend an invitation for you to gather with us here, first, to thank you for your support, service and friendship. This will also give you an opportunity to say good-bye to Hugo, to welcome and meet Peter and to encourage Charlie in his new position.

                We are holding a “Come and Go Coffee”- Hugo doesn’t drink tea! -  on Saturday, July 7 from 2 to 4 pm at Marian Centre.  We hope you will be able to join us. God bless you!

Sincerely, Christine for Hugo, Charlie, Kate and Peter
