News from the Congregation of Notre Dame Sisters’ Library – Tobin

My name is Wirsiy Juliet Bongkisheri. I school at G.B.H.S. Kumbo Form Four. I want to tell you about our book club. We are seven in number with two of our members now in Ndop. This club was started by Sister Mary Ann Rossi. Our dear Sister Cathy Molloy helps us to get the books for our club. Sister Mary Ann has also been a great help. We have read many books together but the book I really enjoyed reading with my friends is titled I Am Malala, a true story of a brave outspoken girl, the youngest winner of the Nobel prize. I like her story because it is a testament to the power of education to change the world. Her story has made me to realize that instead of using bombs and guns, words can be used to change the world. Other books the book club members have read together include A Girl Named Disaster, Chanda’s Wars, Chanda’s Secrets just to name a few. I really enjoy being in the book club.

Books are Friends!

50th anniversary of World Communications Day, May 8, 2016

World Communications Day was established by Pope Paul VI after the Second Vatican Council to draw attention to the “the vast and complex phenomenon of the modem means of social communication”. It is celebrated each year on the Sunday before Pentecost. This year’s theme for the special day is Communication and Mercy: a fruitful encounter. The full text of Pope Francis’ message is available here.

Communication has the power to build bridges, to enable encounter and inclusion, and thus to enrich society. Words can build bridges between individuals and within families, social groups and peoples. Communicating means sharing, and sharing demands listening and acceptance. Listening is much more than simply hearing. Listening allows us to get things right. Listening also means being able to share questions and doubts, to journey side by side, to banish all claims to absolute power and to put our abilities and gifts at the service of the common good.

The Sisters of St. Martha Spirituality Center celebrated Earth Day at St. Pius X Church in magnificent fashion with a musical evening of earth-centered instrumental and vocal music.   There were delightful selections like “I Meant To Do My Work Today”… but a brown bird sang in an apple tree, a butterfly flitted across the field and a robin is calling me…played and sung by an accomplished harpist and singer.  Other selections included “Heavens Gate,” “Sea People”, “The Hills Are Alive With The Sound of Music,”  “Colour of the Wind” and a musical rendition of “Laudatio Si” presented by a number of different individuals and groups.  It was delightful! You can find the Harpist at:
