Fredericton Gathering

Despite a major rainstorm last Saturday, May 6, sisters and associates met, as planned, at the Ramada Inn in Fredericton, NB. Thanks to the skill and expertise of Sister Karen Kelly and Sister Debbie Warner, we connected via technology and Debbie facilitated from her home in Toronto. We were a small group because of the weather but we carried on with the discussion and the process and experienced a new way (for some) to meet and participate. Great day!

Congratulations Sr. Margaret Farley

Sister Margaret Farley: second from right

On May 4, 2017, at the third and final meeting of the 2016-2017 school year for the Catholic HS and ES schools of the Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Chicago - two awards were given to Archdiocese of Chicago Central Office personnel.  The St. Peter the Rock Award (now affectionately called “The Rock”) was given to Margaret Farley, CND. The award was announced as “a new annual award to be given to one or two members of the Office of Catholic School who not only demonstrate outstanding service in their role, but who personify our Catholic mission through their attitude and treatment of others.”  “Christ told St. Peter that he would build his church ‘upon this rock.’  Like St. Peter, the staff of the Office of Catholic Schools is called to provide excellent, constant, and timely support for our Catholic schools.” Sr. Margaret was especially recognized for her support of and work with the Principals. Congratulations Margaret!

Feast of the Visitation May 31, 2017 Prayer/Reflection Service

Introduction:  As Associates renew their Associate commitment and Sisters their vows on this Feast of the Visitation; we unite in prayer for the August General Chapter.  And we rejoice in the gift of thirty-five years of the CND Associate Relationship.  Our reflection today calls attention to how Elizabeth can deepen our understanding of Visitation.

Opening Suggested Song: Prayer of the Congrégation,  (Ave or Songs of Visitation © KP Deignan, CND)

RefrainO dearest Mother and Foundress, we seek not comfort or wealth.

  We only ask that in your name, God may be greatly loved and oh, so faithfully served.

 

O teach us the wisdom of littleness to be simple, humble and poor,

to be open to God at the core of our hearts, and to wait on God’s word evermore.

 

And teach us the way of mobility: to be swift and graceful and true,

so that in our lives we may visit again the ones who are waiting for you.

 

And teach us the mystery of charity: to hold our neighbor in heart,

to sing of the Spirit alive in our midst, and to carry the word of God’s love.
