We were gathered in the dining room at Andrews. We were told there was a Special Guest coming and it was a surprise. Then in walked Andy O'Brien carrying the STANLEY CUP! Andy is a native of PEI who joined the Penguins in 2015. He is the Pittsburgh Penguins director of sport science and performance and has helped their success as Stanley Cup winners two years in a row. His mother was a former employee here at Andrews and he offered to accompany her here with the coveted trophy. He patiently and kindly went from table to table, allowed each one to touch the Cup and answered our questions. It was a delight to see such a lively group of excited seniors!

From the Formation Corner

Last Saturday, August 26th, 2017 was indeed a very special day for the Congrégation de Notre-Dame (CND) community as many sisters, associates and family welcomed Sister Libby Osgood into the novitiate. What a wonderful celebration. From beginning to end, we had an opportunity to engage in a prayerful ritual of acceptance.

Libby made her way into the sacred space of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, accompanied by her PEI CND community who affirmed her desires to enter. We recalled the readings from Jeremiah 29:11-14 (read by Della Gaudet, CND), Luke 2:39-46 (read by Catherine Molloy,CND) and the Constitutions, P. 10 (read by Mary Ann Powers, CND). We heard Libby’s “yes” to the question asked by Ann Broderick, CND, “Are you ready to respond to God’s invitation to continue your journey with the Congregation of Notre Dame by entering the novitiate?”
