25 Years of Associate Relationship

St Joseph Province East Associates who attended the Chapter Meeting in 1999 in Antigonish pose with Sr Georgina McInnis, St Joseph Provincial Leader, and Sisters Therese Arsenault and Alma McLellan. Marg and I both attended this meeting. 

Celebrating 25 years of Associate Relationship, reflecting on these many years gives me much appreciation and love for all those involved with my spiritual growth and the many directions which Associate Relationship has led me.

Sister Gwen O’Neill nicely invited me to consider becoming an Associate. At the time I was two years away from retirement and was feeling some stress. Over a period of one year I studied the Life of St. Marguerite and Associate Relationship. St. Marguerite’s life, her writings and charism greatly appealed to me. I was struck early on in meeting of the great hospitality given by Congrégation de Notre-Dame Sisters and later found hospitality in every gathering and experience.
