New ministry as Co-Coordinator in Visitation East

Anna Rowley, associate

It is with joy in my heart that I begin this ministry as Co-Coordinator in Visitation East. Marjorie and others have been generous in showing me the ropes as I settle into this new position.

Born and raised in Toronto I attended university in Thunder Bay, Ontario and then taught for over five year in Manitouwadge, Ontario where I met my husband, Eric. We married and settled in Montreal, his hometown, and my closer connection with our Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys began. I knew of Marguerite Bourgeoys as an educator, part of the fabric of Canadian history and a holy woman of the church.

Twice weekly I attended continuing education classes at McGill University and the Sherbrooke bus took me past the former mother house; today’s Dawson College. I was struck time and again by the statue of Our Lady of Protection atop the building and it was always a time to offer a prayer and reflect.

It wasn’t until we moved to Grafton, NB that I connected with Congregation of Notre Dame sisters and associates and what a blessing that has been in my life! I look forward to meeting associates throughout the Maritimes as Bernadette, Marjorie and I visit groups this autumn.

Please keep me in your prayers as I find my place in this ministry and be assured you are in mine.

Blessings, Anna
