On August 10th, Middia Doute made her temporary vows (left), as a Religious of Jesus and Mary, in Canape Vert, Haiti. On the right, she is presented with the Constitutions of the Congregation by Sr. Marge Perron, RJM, Provincial.  You may have already received Sr. Marge’s letter detailing the ceremony, but to make sure, a copy is attached to the email accompanying Bridges.  Also attached are beautiful photos of the ceremony that you‘ll certainly want to see!
