Lieutenant Governor Patron
Honourable Antoinette Perry, OPEI
Lieutenant Governor of Prince Edward Island
Congratulations to Open Door Outreach on the celebration of your 15th anniversary of giving hope to incarcerated women of Prince Edward Island. Through your effective ministry, you are helping them to believe in themselves enough to empower them to build better lives.
Positive role models in the family, teachers, mentors, spiritual advisors, and so many more people inspire us to believe in ourselves, motivating us to discover our strengths and capabilities. They ultimately help us to believe in ourselves enough to fulfill our potential and to contribute to our society. Unfortunately, since childhood, many women have not experienced enough nurturing and positive supports and, consequently, have lived a destructive lifestyle.
On behalf of Her Majesty the Queen, I wish to express my appreciation to you and commend you for carrying out your honourable mission of empowering Island women to transition to a healthier and more productive lifestyle, a life where they can be true to themselves. “Faith for Change”, on your logo, acknowledges that you believe that faith in a Higher Power can transform the impossible into the possible.
I wish you continued success in your essential and life-giving ministry.
