Sister's Terry Martin and Margarita Castaneda, Congregation of Notre Dame, Montreal, Canada have impacted people of all faiths through their many years of dedicated work with both children and adults. Their devotion to community service has been far reaching. Teaching people to read and write, facilitating sewing classes county wide, and orchestrating cooking classes and community gardening projects have been just a few of the many remarkable ways that Sister's Terry and Margarita have impacted the lives of so many.
My family has known Sister Terry Martin for twenty years and Sister Margarita for four wonderful years. Sister Terry's twenty years of service in Clay and Cherokee Counties, Western North Carolina will be everlasting. Just recently, both of these strong and passionate women announced that they would be moving on to Connecticut-Sister Terry to Bridgeport, and Sister Margarita to Hartford. While sharing a meal and good conversation with the two of them, I learned that prior to their departure they were training and educating community volunteers to continue their missions...truly the hearts of two very devoted and dedicated volunteers!
