A Message from Kay Duffin, CND

Three weeks ago, I became part of the Notre Dame Community in Résidence Bon-Secours. I am not part of the infirmary community, but it is great to have them all around me. The Francophone sisters here have welcomed me warmly and I am beginning to feel more at home each day. This move was not a sudden one. It came together for me during my retreat in June and the rest is a story of sorting and pitching and packing and finally landing. My room is on the third floor. Each morning I can see daylight getting ready to open up and when the sun decides to shine, it is a breathtaking view. I can see the St. Lawrence River from my window. And so, a new venture for me. What God has planned for the future is gradually being revealed. I will meet with the pastor of St. Augustine's parish in the morning to do some planning for the season of Advent which is upon us. So many good memories of my participation in that parish so many years ago. A couple of our Associates are active there and have taken me in. The Spirit is a 'movin' and the Synod is offering new life. I hope to be part of it. Wish me well for the sake of our Church, of Marguerite's community, of our world. Have a joyous Advent!

Happy 90th Birthday Clare O’ Neill, CND

Celebrating a 90th birthday is truly a blessing and a joyous occasion. On Sunday, November 14, 2021 the Mary of Peace Community at Résidence Bon-Secours came together to celebrate Clare O’Neill’s 90th birthday. The group truly had a wonderful time with games and treats to mark this wonderful occasion. Bishop Wingle was our one special invited guest as COVID guidelines restricted the invitation list.

This celebration highlighted the wonderful and successful person Clare O’Neill truly is. After all, her given name does rhymes with care, share, fair, flair and rare. Her caring, generous, and spirited personality is much to be celebrated and loved. Wishing Clare, a wonderful 90th year filled with love, health, and companionship.

First Commitment to Associate Relationship 

Donna, Yvrose, and Shelli from the Wilton, CT group made their First Commitment during a September weekend retreat at Quonnie. The theme for the retreat was Quonnie’s Gift: Rest, Renewal, Relaxation and Visitation. Unfortunately, due to the limited use of single bedrooms on the second floor of Villa Margarita, a larger Associate retreat was not possible this year. After attending their first Quonnie retreat in 2019, all three women asked if they could make their First Commitment at Quonnie. Their request was honored during a beautiful liturgy celebrated by Fr. Gene McKenna during the retreat. Everyone enjoyed a celebration dinner afterwards with lots of food, joy and laughter!
