A new website for the RNDM Sisters

The Canadian province of the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions (RNDM) have recently revamped their website that you can visit at https://rndmcanada.org/

The RNDM Sisters invite everyone to explore something of their life and mission in Canada.

In updating their website, the RNDM Sisters wanted:

  1. more visuals than words;
  2. the site to be informative;
  3. that new information could be added regularly;

The RNDM Sisters have included many visuals in this site, with a view to add more.  They have also continued to highlight the ecological commitments the RNDMs first made at our 2008 General Chapter.

A new history of the RNDMs, authored by Rosa Bruno-Jofré, has been recently published, and the refreshed website is a space where they highlight the book. They still hope to have an in-person launch once Covid has abated.  Stay tuned!!

In the meantime, they made a video about the book, in which the author, three reviewers and three Sisters speak about this new RNDM history.  Notices about both the book and the video are both accessible on the Home Page when you scroll down.

The Sisters will soon begin a blog as part of their site, for which a team of writers will make regular contributions. The blog will officially launch on March 21, 2022.  They are also exploring a section where Sisters could share their favourite recipes. Both those initiatives will be up on the new website soon.

From the former website, they moved to the “refreshed” site, a 30 minute video that was created for their 150th anniversary in 2012, and a shorter written history of the Canadian province, written for the same anniversary.

They have posted the biographies of all their Canadian Sisters who have died since 2006 – their “ancestors” in religious life.

The new site also hosts a “Research Project” that documents, mostly in photos, the history of the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions (RNDM), in Peru and Bolivia, a mission that was founded from Canada in 1968.
