Chris Butterill, Manitoba

I learned early that Blessed Marie Rose encouraged her congregation, sisters and associates to share their gifts to help others and to encourage others to do the same.

The mission and charism of the Holy Names begun by Mother Rose is there to encourage all of us. In our province, we support each other in our personal and public life at home and in the community. We meet regularly and engage in apostolic projects in the three major areas of education, outreach, and spirituality. Opportunities are there for leadership, teamwork, and personal and group development. We help each other and grow together.

Currently I am an Associate team leader in the spirituality group, a spiritual director in the Ignatian exercises and a member of the Winnipeg Bat Kol Tri-diocesan Committee.
