Formation Corner

Happy Spring to each of you!!! Since our last communication, we, the sisters of the Mount Carmel Novitiate Community have been nurturing new life in our inter-provincial novitiate. One highlight, the parish graced us with a small plot to start a garden! I quickly took advantage of “Marguerite’s plot” and planted tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, radishes, lettuce, and herbs! We hope the harvest will be a­plenty this Fall!

While we continue to attend to the physical needs of the house –adding new carpets to rooms, cleaning more windows and bathrooms, sewing drapes and curtains (with the help of Suzanne Poulin, CND), painting the newly furnished chapel, planning an open house, or simply transformingthe confessional into our tool closet (no kidding!) –we have also taken time to get to know each other and discern together the purpose of this local community at this time in history.

Feast of the Visitation: May 31, 2017

On Wednesday May 31st, 2017 the Mabou Sisters and Associates gathered in the Chapel at the Renewal Centre to celebrate the Visitation. We had a beautiful Prayer/Reflection Service and listened to reflective music by Kathleen Deignan, CND. Sisters renewed their Vows and Associates their commitment. We ended with everyone singing the Magnificat. We then enjoyed a lovely potluck supper provided by our Associates. All had a wonderful evening with good food and conversation. We as Associates are truly blessed to have Sr. Coline, Sr. Éléonore and Sr. Catherine as our beacons of light and pray they continue to shine brightly.
