Novice Libby Osgood

Novice Libby Osgood will be leaving for North Carolina on February 18th for her next apostolic and community experience. She will be forming community with Sisters Margarita Castañeda and Thérèse Martin in Hayesville and will also have the opportunity to meet-up with the associates of the area. Libby will be returning to White Plains on June 1st. While there, she will be participating in a series of ministry experiences in the parish as well as in the local area. I invite you to pray for Libby and her new community in this next stage of her discernment process. May her next apostolic experience help her to integrate her sense of religious life within the mission of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame. Many blessings and thanks!

Fanning That Flame Of Mission

On February 10, Monica Lambton, JPIC coordinator, journeyed to Toronto for the monthly gathering of sisters and associates. We got a good turnout of almost 20, just ahead of the wintry blast.

Everything is connected"

Going To The Peripheries

The Miramichi Quilt Guild of which I’ve been a member for 20 years, gives a quilt annually to an organization in the Miramichi area to sell tickets to raise money for their cause. In 2018, a quilt that I made was quilted by another Guild member, Betty Doyle. It was donated to Special Olympics Miramichi and they raised $6,250.00 in 11 months for their organization. The funds will be used February 21st - 23rd, 2019 when Miramichi hosts the NB Special Olympics Winter Games.
