Congratulations Sister Marie Zarowny

On May 15, St. Mark's College at UBC will confer a Doctor of Sacred Letters on Sister Marie Zarowny, SSA, for "her distinguished service to her Congregation, to the field of education and, especially, to Christian faith-based communities in assisting them to hear and respond the Gospel call to social transformation."
Among her many accomplishments, Sister Zarowny has been on the front lines of supporting aboriginal peoples who attended Indian Residential Schools and was the first coordinator of the Social Justice Office of the Victoria Diocese founded by Bishop Remi de Roo in 1978.
