Zoom Retreat with Sister Lorraine Caza, CND

Saturday, May 29th, 2021, via zoom, Sr. Lorraine Caza, CND, presented a Mini-Retreat to Sisters and Associates of Visitation Province. Theresa MacNeil, VP East Co-Coordinator welcomed the participants to this retreat and Dianne MacAskill opened with the General Chapter prayer 2021 Together for the Life of the World. Alexa Smith, Associate, introduced Sr. Lorraine Caza. The retreat was an inspiring presentation which focused on: WHAT IF WE REASSESS OUR FULL YEAR OF COVID-19 EXPERIENCE?

WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED? WHAT ARE WE GRATEFUL FOR? HAVE WE ANY REGRETS?

Sister Loraine Caza ended her retreat inviting each one to write their own personal Magnificat. She shared a Magnificat written by Jacqueline Fehlner, Coordinator VP Central. We were blessed to have Associate Dolores MacGillivary share a Magnificat she wrote and shared. Prior to the retreat ending the Sisters and Associates in attendance renewed their Vows/Commitments. Sr. Connie MacIsaac read the Vows for the Congregation de Notre-Dame sisters who were present while Theresa MacNeil led the Associates in their commitment. The concluding prayer was read by Associate Karen Volpe. Sister Connie MacIsaac expressed heartfelt appreciation to Sr. Lorraine for giving of her time and leaving us with a most memorable experience.
