Associate Relationship


The associate coordinators' meeting was held at the Motherhouse, October 9-11, 2012. Present at the meeting were: Sr. Shelley Grant and Anne Pisacreta, Western/Northern Region; Sr. Kay Duffin and Ann Gotfryd, Central Region; and Sr. Phyllis Gallant and Winnie Odo, Eastern Region. Sr. Connie MacIsaac represented the Leadership Team.

Each of the areas presented its report of activities being done in its locale. Following these reports, the committee decided to gather information and put together a timeline of tasks that would be helpful for new coordinators.

Monica Lambton introduced the book: Living Justice, A Gospel Response To Poverty. She described it as an ecumenical worship and action guide on poverty and justice in Canada.

Marilyn Doucette, CND reported from the Central Committee. The group took time to review the report and a discussion took place regarding certain items. The questions that were discussed concerned:

  • Why associates leave;
  • The finances for the future;
  • The Associate Relationship Web Page;
  • The Initial Formation Guidebook.

Marilyn spoke of ongoing formation and how important it is to foster the theme of Church. She also said that a group of sisters/associates are still working on the website.

The Central Office is always looking for good quality photos. A release form is available for people to sign which gives permission to use pictures for future usage. They are eager to include stories of how associates are living the “Visitation” experience. Visitation East presented one gentleman for acceptance into the Associate Program for January 2013.
The next meeting will be April 16 & 18, 2013 at the Motherhouse.
