Novena in honour of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys

On Tuesday, January 3, 2017 the parishioners of St. Mary Parish in Mabou joined with the sisters and associates in praying the Novena in honour of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys. In preparation for the celebration of her feast on January 12 the Novena prayer was recited following Mass each day and those at home were invited to join us. Father Andrew Gillies, Chaplain at St. FX University, was invited to celebrate the Eucharist. Josephine MacNeil, associate, welcomed the congregation. Sisters and associates took part in the Entrance and Offertory processions and fulfilled the roles of Lector and Eucharistic Minister. Following Communion Peter Sargent, associate, presented a short, heartfelt reflection on St. Marguerite and how she strongly influences his life. Following our time of prayer and praise expressed in word and song we all assembled in the Renewal Centre where we enjoyed the traditional “cup of tea” and delicious lunch which was prepared by our associates. May St. Marguerite continue to intercede for all of us as we strive to live the charism designed by her so many years ago.
