“On Fire for Mission”

“On Fire for Mission” saw 63 associates and sisters gather at the Motherhouse on the Victoria Day weekend for the First Visitation Province Associate Assembly! The assembly began with a very beautiful and moving opening ritual. One could feel the love for St. Marguerite and the strong desire for carrying out the mission. Sisters Ona Bessette and Josephine Badali led us through a process in which our hearts were inflamed. On Saturday evening, we were blessed to be able to celebrate a beautiful Eucharist at Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel to renew our commitment and vows as associates and sisters, respectively. It was a joy to have witnessed and experienced such a spirit-filled assembly. Heartfelt thanks and congratulations to our associate co-coordinators Anna Rowley, Marjorie Allison-Ross, Karen Volpe, Sr. Nancy Hurren and Pat Weicker for their vision and creative energy. How fitting that we gathered on the Feast of Pentecost as the Spirit was indeed present!

New Louisbourg Volunteer Project

On Friday morning, May 18th, Sisters Elaine Hawrylak, Mary Morris and Connie MacIsaac met with the Fortress of Louisbourg Project Manager and Curator at the Congregation of Notre-Dame Display Room. “The staff at Louisbourg is very appreciative for any time that the CND volunteers can give to this new endeavour.” They made us feel that this project is so important and much needed. Louisbourg cannot afford to have staff in all the buildings so they are grateful that the CND will have volunteers prepared to speak with the visitors who come to House #11 (CND display).

Sister Elaine hosted the Friday afternoon meeting with the Sydney area volunteers. They were very interested in the opportunity to spend time in our Display Room. Their enthusiasm was “catchy” and we all left with excitement and hope for this new venture.

The staff of The Fortress is offering an Orientation Session for CND volunteers on June 8th.

Feast of the Visitation Prayer Service

Introduction

Leader: We gather today to celebrate the Feast of the Visitation. “Visitation” refers to the momentous, intimate, and joyful encounter of Mary, the mother of Jesus, with her cousin, Elizabeth. Each woman lived a radical openness to the Holy Spirit; each needed the support and companionship of the other; each responded humbly, gently, and with great liberty of spirit to the designs of God in her life.
