Associates at Area Day Meetings with the General Administration

Associates were well represented at the area days. The picture depicts Associates, Sisters and members of the General Administration in Wilton, CT.  An Associate commented that she felt most welcome and “felt love, gratitude and experience of sisterhood for being with the Sisters and Associates”.  One Associate commented that “experiencing face to face the openness, acceptance and appreciation of the General Leadership for the Associates was affirming and positive”.  Associates valued the prayer, sharing and connecting with Associates from different areas.  The slide presentation on the history and development of the Congregation presented by the General Administration was a learning experience and much appreciated.  “The courage and grace that runs through so much of the Congregation’s history continues today in the lives of Sisters and Associates”. At Wilton, Sisters Agnes Campbell and Danielle Dubois, who are the liaisons of the General Council with the Associate Relationship, were invited to spend additional time at the end of the sessions with the Associates.  The conversation was marked by keen listening and openness and willingness to look together at sustainability issues for the future of the Associate Relationship.

Take Action on Climate Change

Sisters and Associates on PEI joined together in Summerside, in Stratford and at Andrews in Charlottetown to catch the excitement generated by the Climate March in New York so well expressed by Monica Lambton, JPIC Coordinator, in her presentations. It wasn’t hard to catch the fever but it was also evident that this is a very overwhelming crisis. We were encouraged and challenged, however, by Monica’s ability to connect all this to Marguerite’s call to us to be committed “at least among ourselves” to do what we can to address the climate change issue as well as other interconnected issues. Another highlight of her trip was her visit to the Chaplaincy Center at UPEI. We were warmly received there by Sister Susan Kidd and appreciated the participation and interest of the students as they assessed the ramifications of Climate Change. We were particularly pleased that Rob Dennis, Chair of the Religious Studies Department, Anne Brathwaite, Chair of Diversity and Social Justice Studies and Carolyn Peach Brown, Chair of Environmental Studies, joined us. We have been left with much to think about.
