VISITATION EAST - July 2015 - CND Associate Relationship Newsletter

Winnie’s Heartfelt Thanks to Associates

For most of us, the saying “time flies” is very familiar. As June 30th approaches this saying is all too familiar to me, I’m left to wonder how six years could go by so quickly.

These years have been a blessed gift that began one morning when Sister Maura McGrath phoned and asked me if I was still interested in the co-Coordinator position for Visitation East and of course, my answer was “yes”! I could hardly contain the joy that welled up in my heart as I phoned Sister Theresa Sampson to let her know that her prayers were answered and so a journey of “visitation” began with Sister Phyllis Gallant at my side, guiding me through the first five years. Looking back gives me many reasons to thank God, Mary and Saint Marguerite for accompanying us as we travelled to the hearts and homes of the sisters and associates of New Brunswick, PEI and Nova Scotia who showed us so much love and warmth.

Corporate Stance on Climate Change

On Friday, June 25, Sister Josephine Badali signed a letter sent to the Prime Minister of the Province of Quebec, Mr. Philippe Couillard. In this letter we express our concern for the environment and we “strongly call upon (…) the Heads of State, to make a firm, concerted and binding commitment against the threat of global warming and to counteract the catastrophic consequences. For our part, we commit to support the positive decisions you will make on this matter.”

The letter will be sent to a list of decision-makers presented by the social justice team of our provinces and regions.
