Visitation Provincial Assembly “HOW THEN SHALL WE LIVE?” September Assembly Presentations

Submitted by Marjorie Allison-Ross

Bernadette Fegan, Anna Rowley and I are in the process of visiting the Maritime Associate Groups to provide presentations about the information that we received at the Visitation Province Assembly in July on Contemplative Prayer and Dialogue and the Visitation Province Directional Statement.

In September, Anna and I visited with the Mabou Associates and Sisters on Sunday evening September 13 at the St Joseph Renewal Centre. On Monday morning, September 14, we met with the Sydney and Area Associates and Sisters at Parkland. The Miramichi Associates welcomed us on the 21st at St Mary’s Church Hall. Anna and Bernadette met with the Antigonish Associates on Sunday afternoon, September 27 at Sr Isabel MacLellan’s home. The Associates and Sisters who have attended the presentations to date have expressed gratitude for the information. We encouraged them to practice Contemplative Prayer.
