THANK YOU

THANK YOU: A big THANK YOU from Sr. Beth Davies for your messages of support and concern following the Feb 12th total fire loss of the Pennington Gap Virginia Town Hall, the location of the Addiction Education Center where Sister Beth has ministered since 1982. The work of re-organizing for Sister Beth is on hold while our area also deals with the recent snow, cold, flooding and survival needs of both Lee and Wise Counties. Both counties are now under states of emergency with the National Guard. Many folks are homebound during this time, including Sister Beth. Internet and cell service for Sister Beth is unavailable at her home so for now her message is, “Thank you, thank you, thank you for you love and prayers.”

Vocation/Formation Committee

The Vocation/Formation Committee met this past weekend at the Mother House. We were heartened to hear reports about how Consecrated Life is being celebrated in different corners of the province, both at the diocesan level and within our Congregation of Notre Dame communities. Let us continue to give thanks for the wonderful contribution made by religious to Church and Society over the ages. - Sheila Sullivan, CND

Vocation Formation Resource Team: At our meeting last weekend we looked at Pope Francis' Letter re Consecrated Life: Apostolic Letter of His Holiness Pope Francis to All Consecrated People on the Occasion of the Year of Consecrated Life. The Pope’s letter encourages us to look to the past with gratitude, live the present with passion and embrace the future with hope.
