Going to Peripheries

I will share about my going to the peripheries. For over twenty-five years, I have been actively involved with the work of Development and Peace. I am a member of the Charlottetown Diocesan Council of D&P and responsible to carry out the two annual campaigns in my parish. Being involved in this work is truly a call from God. The work is demanding and sometimes discouraging… a test of one's faith! However, the Spirit is alive. Working with members, parishioners and partners inspires me to continue doing my little bit to help build a just world. Members of D&P are encouraged to network with like-minded organizations and groups.

Feast of the Visitation from coast to coast

PEI 

It was May 31, the Feast of the Visitation. It was the day for the renewal of our vows. It was the occasion on which we celebrated our jubilarians. The PEI Sisters were all together. We began with Mass in our community room, presided by our chaplain, Father Bob Coady. After the homily, we renewed our vows in English and French. We then enjoyed a delicious lobster dinner in Andrews’ dining room. After dinner, we returned to our community room, where we expressed our appreciation for our three jubilarians, Sisters Catherine Smith (70), Marie Gaudet (70) and Anne T. Gillis (60). We did this through song, cards and spoken words. These sisters were invited to tell stories about their life as sisters of the Congregation de Notre-Dame, and we very much enjoyed their anecdotes. The celebration continued in the evening with the sisters living at Andrews. We had a prayer service, our Jubilarians received gifts and we enjoyed refreshments. Many reasons to celebrate, and celebrate we did!
