Outreach to Young Adults


Until 2011, leadership formation for young adults, “Gathered, Gifted and Giving,” brought several young adults from across the country to the Stable in Pierrefonds and also to the Motherhouse. From all accounts these sessions offered enriching leadership formation that was most appreciated by the young adults who participated in them. We are profoundly grateful to each sister who helped organize these gatherings and to those who generously gave of time and talent to creating and supporting this invaluable educational experience for young people. Presently the committee is looking at a different way of reaching out to young adults. An initial conversation has begun with the sisters in Three Brooks, Nova Scotia re: offering a session to a small group. Ongoing conversation will continue to explore this possibility.

Wisdom Circle Gatherings in the different areas
Responding to the strong recommendation of the August participants, the committee members have been working hard to organize Wisdom Circles “Prophetic Religious Life, If Not Now – When? Culture of Vocations,” in the different areas of Visitation Province. It is important to note that this effort comes from a more intimate awareness of the desire of many young adults for a deeper relationship with our God and a yearning to participate in the mission of Jesus.
None of us knows the future that God is creating. As we move into the unknown, may we continue to pray that we, as province, be attentive to the whisperings of the Spirit calling us to share our sense of mission today with young people who may be knocking on our door.
