Finding the Good
We truly believe there is goodness within every young person who walks through the doors of Marymound. While it may be difficult for some of them to see the good, Marymound uses it as the motivator that guides caring and compassionate staff to nurture and encourage all their children and youth.
Marymound is as a place where youth and families learn to overcome the challenges of life’s adversities and advance by gaining a sense of belonging and independence while realizing their ultimate potential.
The children and youth of Marymound have an uphill climb, but with your support they can reach their peak, one step at a time.
Marymound staff and volunteers hosted a wonderful Garden Party to honour the Sisters of the Good Shepherd outside their residence at Marymound on a picture-perfect day.
Sisters Lorraine Perreault, Brigid Hussey, Florence McCadden and Barbara Wells were greeted and thanked by hundreds of well wishers for their many years of love and caring for thousands of children and youth and their impact on so many lives. More>
The departure of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd is fast approaching and CBC TV came to Marymound and created a nice tribute piece about the Sisters and the legacy of love they are leaving behind.
