News from Visitation Province

Our Celebration of Earth Day was a special one at Andrews. All the residents were conscious of this day as they witnessed the colorful and meaningful display of "our common home" near the front entrance. Beside this beautiful display prepared by our Director of Activities, Jackie Vanderzwaag, was an Information Sheet for everybody, describing the ways in which we might honour and continue to celebrate Earth Day every day of our lives. The Sisters were happy to share with everybody our large earth ball.

During our Evening Prayer, prepared by Sr. Anne T. Gillis, Sisters continued our celebration with a special prayer honouring the gifts of life which we receive from our earth. The display was prepared by Sr. Marie Gaudet.

The little boy had an unobstructed view of the main altar, which he seemed to enjoy as he was hanging off the pew looking at the sanctuary most of the time.
