On Saturday, October 14th, a diocesan Development and Peace Workshop, organized by Donna LeBlanc, was held at the Msgr Boyd Center in Fredericton, NB. We began with a Gathering Prayer in which all members participated. A student representative form St. Thomas University spoke of his involvement in D & P and his desire to invite other youth to join in. Certificates of Honor were awarded to members who were actively involved for many years and were a great influence on others. Among those recognized were Sister Charlotte Lockhart, Gail and Clarence McKibbon, Miramichi, NB. (Gail is a CND Associate)

Danny Gillis, coordinator in publishing “Jubilee: 50 Years of Solidarity,” gave an interesting and informative overview of D & P. He outlined three important aspects, Movement, Partnership and Advocacy and explained the many campaigns carried out over 50 years. Nicholas B Kelgora gave a presentation on the current campaign: Women at the Heart of Peace. “Honor women who build peace in their communities throughout the world. Give hope to victims of all kinds of conflicts.”

St. Dunstan’s Parish generously provided our noon meal. The entire day was a rich experience.

Celebrating Three Golden Jubilarians

On Wednesday, September 20th, Sisters Nina Glinski, Eileen Roach and Mary Corbett joined the Sisters of Holy Redeemer Convent for a celebration in honour of their Golden Jubilee. Nina, Eileen and Mary entered the CND in 1965, the year the English Novitiate opened in Ottawa. Although they were joined by the senior Novices from the Motherhouse in Montreal, they were the first Novices to complete their full two year Novitiate in Ottawa.

This was followed by wine and cheese, picture-taking, and a presentation of cards and flowers, then to the dining room to enjoy a delicious lunch prepared by Coleen, our cook--and to top it off--a Jubilee cake! A joyful spirit prevailed throughout the afternoon.
