Presentation on the life and spirit of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys

St. Joseph’s Parish – Kingston: As part of our St. Marguerite Bourgeoys 400th celebrations in Kingston, Sisters Marijke Gerretsen and Mildred Chabassol have developed a very engaging PowerPoint presentation on the life and spirit of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys for various parish groups. I had the occasion to participate in their presentation to the St. Joseph's Parish CWL on Monday, February 10 which evoked many comments, questions about St. Marguerite, and memories of when many of them were students of the Congregation de Notre-Dame Sisters. The women felt it was an informative evening and that the CWL had much in common with the spirit of St. Marguerite.

World Day of Prayer for the Sick

February 11th was the celebration of the World Day of Prayer for the Sick. The Congregation de Notre-Dame sisters of Mary of Peace as well as the sisters who are residents of Bon Secours Residence received the anointing of the sick during the daily Mass. Bishop James Wingle and the other two chaplains concelebrated the Mass and anointed the sisters present in the Chapel and also those in their rooms. The Mass was moving and the care with which the sacrament was administered to the sisters was a witness of the deep faith of each sister. The Mass was followed by lunch in the dining rooms on each floor. A prayerful atmosphere was evident as the head and hands of each sister was anointed with the oil of the sick.
