Sister Theresa Sampson Has Visitors

On Saturday, January 9th, journeying associate Mary Jo Jaques and her daughter Megan, who is a 1st year CBU student, and myself visited the Congregation of Notre Dame Health Care Centre to visit the Sisters who live there. While there, we learned that Sr. Theresa had returned home to Parkland the day before. We then went to Parkland and low and behold Sr. Theresa was in the entrance when we arrived. She was so thrilled to see us as we were to see her too. God bless her. She was using the walker and will continue to do so until her strength is fully restored. Continue to keep her in your prayers for a full recovery. We felt truly blessed to be visiting the Sisters in the spirit of St Marguerite Bourgeoys.

35th Anniversary of Associate Relationship Update

The 35th Anniversary Committee invites groups to think of activities that they can do to commemorate this special milestone in the life of the Congregation de Notre Dame. One idea that has been encouraged is for groups to plant a tree, shrub, flowers or vegetable garden. This would be a symbol of solidarity with the tree planted at the Motherhouse. Whatever your group decides to do, please take pictures and write about it and send this to the Coordinators so it can be placed in the Archives. There may be a Facebook page where we can inform others about our Anniversary activities.

Associates in the Maritimes Are Involved with the Resettlement of Syrian Refugees

In early January, we asked associates to let us know if they were part of any preparations to receive the Syrian Newcomers to Canada. We heard from a few groups.

In Woodstock, NB, 2 associates are part of the Planning Committees for their local areas (Finance and Health & Wellness). The overall Planning Committee is a partnership of churches, organizations and individuals working together to submit applications to receive approximately 6 families in Carleton County. Many associates have donated money, clothing and household items. Some have assisted with sorting clothing donations. One of the homes that a Syrian family will be living in is the former Congregation of Notre Dame Convent where sisters lived for 27 years. Some of the associates have been asked to clean it and prepare it to be ready to receive the new family. One picture shows volunteers sorting the clothing donations. Other photo is the Convent on the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of the Congregation of Notre Dame Mission in Woodstock in 2003. The Committee has just been informed that it may be March before the families arrive.
