Sister Violaine Paradis, CND  worked as an actress before experiencing a return to God that made her leave everything to enter the Congrégation de Notre-Dame novitiate in August 2009. After her first vows, she pursued studies in pastoral theology and, later, embarked on an integral training centered on human development at the Institut de Formation Humaine et Intégrale de Montréal. In 2017, her Congregation invited her to live a one-year mission and immersion experience in Honduras in one of the CND communities present in the field. For three years, Sister Violaine has been working as a social pastoral worker in the Centre-Sud and Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighborhoods in Montreal.
