Bishop's Falls (1981-1984)

In the autumn of 1981, Sisters Lita Camozzi and Anita Hartman were assigned to the catechetical mission in north-central Newfoundland to continue the religious correspondence work initiated by the Sisters of Presentation in 1975.

The Sisters assisted the pastors in the communities of Bishop’s Falls, Grand Falls, Windsor and Norris Arm by teaching catechism to the children. When the pair left in June 1983, Sister Adua Zampese replaced them in the Western missions for a year, making several trips to help and encourage parents with teaching religion in the home. The Sisters’ correspondence school in Clarenville assumed the responsibility of this region of the Diocese. The mission closed in 1984 upon the departure of Sister Zampese.
