Sister Donna Brady
The Sisters of St Martha in Antigonish have always been about hospitality and sanctuary.
"The Marthas" as they're known, began more than a century ago, at what was then, St Francis Xavier College.
hey acted as the housekeepers and caretakers for the students and priests who went there...eventually expanding their mission beyond the walls of the University.
Now Sister Donna Brady and some of her colleagues at the Marthas are taking on a new mission.
They're giving rank and file Catholics in the area a chance to come together, ask questions, and even challenge the way the Church is handling the current crisis.
Maritime Magazine host Pauline Dakin sat down last week with Sister Donna Brady, who helps run the Bethany Retreat Centre in Antigonish.
