Area Gatherings

Visitation Province

Area Gathering in Victoria, BC 

On the second Sunday of Advent East met West, as we gathered in Victoria for reflections from the General Chapter. With the sun shining, the birds singing and the grass being mowed, one could hardly realize we had entered the month of December.

Though our numbers were small, we did not lack energy or enthusiasm. We found the process designed for these gatherings very good. With Donna Kelly and Josephine Badali bringing us their personal experiences and insights we felt connected to the whole Congrégation de Notre-Dame community.

As we contemplated, sang, shared and danced we reflected on our past, were attentive to our present reality, and move hopefully into our future.

We were delighted that associate Maria MacDonald was with us adding so much with her insights. Sister Mary Jane Wilson, our hostess, graciously welcomed us to her home, treating us to a delightful meal.

The day was indeed a graced encounter for each of us.

Area Gathering in Toronto

Rooted in Jesus Christ, 35 associates and sisters of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame met at Scarboro Missions in Toronto on Sunday, November 26, 2016 to review the 2016 General Chapter. The morning was dedicated to the General Chapter presentation, facilitated by Sister Maureen Baldwin and Karen Volpe, and in the afternoon Sister Maureen led us through a process for the upcoming Provincial Chapter.

Many thoughts and opinions were exchanged, sometimes loudly, sometimes with laughter but always with respect. Lunch time was filled with voices, talking, connecting with old friends and getting acquainted with new ones. A day of sharing and exchanging ideas.
