My Experience In Tijuana – First Part

Dear Sisters and Associates, I want to share with you the first part of my reflections on my service in Tijuana.

I left on June 24th, the feast of Saint John the Baptist and the National Day of the Province of Quebec. I went as a migrant, which is to say with a small backpack and everything needed to live this experience.

We know that this is how our migrant brothers and sisters travel when they set out. I arrived in Tijuana at around nine o'clock in the evening.

July 22-23, 2019: charism

Sisters Mariana, Violaine and Jeannette gave a presentation on this theme. Their fine introduction began with the inspiration of Sister Marie-Marcelle who says, “charism is in the person non in the works.” We immediately understood that on that day we would be working on ourselves.

We very much appreciated the way our sisters presented the theme; it was practical rather than theoretical. There were times of reflections that allowed us to dig deeper within ourselves in order to answer the questions asked of us. For example: What does charism mean to me, and how do I live it in relation to Marguerite Bourgeoys? Through in-depth and personal reflections, we found many answers to these questions. In our own lives, we found concrete experiences of which we are proud and which are in keeping with the charism of Marguerite Bourgeoys.

Visitation Gathering in Japan

Dear Sisters and Associates,

Greetings to all of you! What a joy to be able to take time to share with you some news of our Visitation 2019 gathering in Japan.

On Sunday, July 21, 2019, we went to Mass with the Japanese CND sisters at their parish church in Tsukuba where they usually go every Sunday.

We walked together to the church. While we were walking, we chatted and enjoyed the surroundings. We listened and admired the quiet, neat streets. The bicycles scared us when they passed near us. However, bicycling is part of their customs and culture.
