In August 2016, nine students, coming from many different regions of Japan, arrived to experience Canadian culture first hand. It was also a wonderful opportunity for them to be involved in learning English at Rivier Academy, School of the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary.
While in Canada, Sister Hilda visited the Sisters of Prince Albert, her family, friends, and her hometown of St. Lazare, Manitoba. Sister Hilda is the 5th in a family of 14 children. Her family is a happy, bonded family, enjoying each other, teasing and always ready to help each other in one way or another.
