Born and raised in Troyes, France, in 1653 Marguerite Bourgeoys came as a new recruit to de Maisonneuve's tiny and beleaguered settlement of Ville-Marie, founded in 1642 as a Christian missionary society. These early years in New France marked a special period in her life. Firmly committed to the belief that the world would be a better place if people learned to understand one another, she worked to build a better church and a better society, especially for women and children. Marguerite Bourgeoys's life story teaches us about tolerance and compassion, ideals that are no less important now than three centuries ago.
Patricia Simpson is coordinator of research services at the Marguerite Bourgeoys Museum in Old Montreal, the author of Marguerite Bourgeoys and Montreal, 1640-1665, and co-author of Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours: A Chapel and Its Neighbourhood.
