So many reasons to give thanks!

Under a clear blue sky and warm sun, members of the Motherhouse Green Committee enjoyed a scrumptious picnic.   

The sounds of laughter and smiling faces spoke of our deep gratitude for …

  • the mutual support  in responding to  Mother Earth
  • fresh Quebec strawberries
  • lavender, thyme, rosemary, mint, basil decorating the table
  • plaques in our four languages marking our membership in L’Église Verte
  • Special gratitude to Sr. Fernande whose support is invaluable
  • Marguerite Bourgeoys who graced our picnic table
  • Many helping hands who prepared the picnic
  • And so much more…

Visitations Abound!

Our three-day retreat at Andrews of Charlottetown facilitated by Sister Becky McKenna, May 29-31, was an excellent preparation for the Feast of the Visitation. Sister Becky spoke to us of Visitation encounters in our daily living, helped us reflect on the fact that each of us is the Beloved of God, led us into Praying with Breath, and much more. As usual, the genuineness of her message, the inspiring music and visuals, and the prayerful handouts contributed to a powerful retreat experience. Father John Lacey presided at our Eucharistic celebrations and gave us the Sacrament of the Sick.

On our Feast day, we were blessed with the presence of almost all of our PEI CND Sisters and our candidate Libby. At the Eucharist, we renewed our vows in English and French. We enjoyed a delicious lobster dinner with the other residents. This special occasion was also a time to celebrate our Jubilarians, Sisters Lorraine Arsenault (60) and Marie-Norma Gallant (50) – true VISITATION experiences!

Beyond Belief: Becoming the Mystics and Prophets We Are Called to Be

Coming Event: Beyond Belief: Becoming the Mystics and Prophets We Are Called to Be. A workshop retreat with author/artist/activist Jan Phillips, September 18-20, 2017 at Villa Madonna, Saint John, NB. Becoming a prophetic person starts with a spiritual practice. It moves from silence to thought to word and action. When our words and actions are rooted in our spiritual commitments, we become a light in the world and a force for good. This workshop is an entry point into our own deep wisdom. Using the tools of music, poetry, story-telling, and imagery, we explore the landscape of our own experience, mining it for insight and ideas about the work ahead.
