Thanks and Appreciation

Three of our beloved community members left us in December to celebrate Christmas in the joy of New Life: Sisters Dorothy McCarron, Alfreda Rogers and Margaret Arsenault. Then came the shock of the sudden death of our dear companion, Sister Mary Cummiskey, on January 18. We miss them and mourn the loss of these four beautiful women. However, we are consoled by the tremendous display of sympathy and support we received from community, family members and friends. We are grateful for the beautiful messages from our Provincial Administration Team and so many others from Visitation Province and beyond: letters, cards, emails, telephone calls, etc. We deeply appreciated the presence of our many CND sisters and family members who shared their memories of our loved ones so beautifully at the Memorial Services held before the wakes! The outpouring of visitors at the wakes and funerals and the eloquent tributes expressed by our pastor, Fr. Floyd Gallant, were touching manifestations of the high esteem in which our departed loved ones were held. Our heartfelt thanks to all who showed their love and concern in so many ways! 

Associate Relationship

In the past year we have seen the move to two associate co-coordinators in both the Central and Eastern Regions. In June we will see the completion of Winnie Odo’s second term as associate co-coordinator for the Eastern Region. We, the leadership team, are very grateful for Winnie’s many years of creative and generous service to and with associates and sisters. We extend to Winnie our best wishes for a future full of hope and continuing service in new and wonderful directions.

January General Conference

A highlight of the January 2015 General Conference was the two-day workshop with Father Anthony Gittins, CSSp. All Province and Region team members were invited to attend this workshop. Father Gittins has taught Theology and Cultural Anthropology at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago since 1984 and he is the author of many books. His new book, Living Mission Interculturally – Faith and Culture, will be published in the spring. It was a gift that all members of our Administration Team participated in this workshop with the hope of sharing it in some way with all our membership.
