Sister Bea Baker in El Paso

Sister Bea Baker will go to El Paso, Texas on Thursday November 8 to volunteer for 8 days at the Annunciation House for Immigrants. Recently immigration officials have been releasing large numbers of migrants seeking asylum to shelters along the border, and these shelters lack the personnel and funds to deal with this influx. In response, LCWR has asked its congregations to send donations and, where possible, sisters; because of Bea’s generosity, we are able to do both. We are very grateful to her and suggest that all of us pray the following blessing, composed by Sister Rosemary Sullivan, each day Sister Bea is in El Paso.

Canadian Bishops release a Statement on Water

The issue of water – as sacred and as a human right that so many are deprived of – has been frequently mentioned by sisters and associates as a way to live out care for our common home and going to the peripheries. JPIC is currently preparing for several upcoming actions around protecting water. And so we were very happy to receive the news that the CCCB recently released a statement on water. It is quite a good document and it is helpful to have such encouragement for action on water to come from the Bishops. Council of Canadians Chair Maude Barlow said in an e-mail message, "Always glad to have new and important voices on this issue and the Bishops represent one of them." You can read the full statement here: https://www.cccb.ca/site/images/stories/pdf/CCCB_Drinking_Water_2018.pdf

Word on Fire

Our Lady of Hope Retreat Centre welcomed associates, sisters and friends to retreat days in PE. Father Bill Brennan of Fredericton was the facilitator offering “a time to tend the eternal flame of the Sacred” within us and in the world. We learned new prayer paths. We explored our own personal graced history, remembering both the bitter wine and the best wine, and we rejoiced in discovering anew the extravagance of our loving God. With words, music, laughter, “spiritual conversation” in groups, quiet time and social time, we shared our stories. Many thanks to Father Bill, and also to Anna Rowley, our associate co-coordinator, planner and organizer of this retreat time.
