Visit with Congregation Leadership Team

The Truro, NS associates on October 4th hosted the Congregation Leadership Team: Sisters Agnes (Cape Breton), Ercilia (Central America), Ona (USA), Danielle (Quebec) and Sophie (Cameroon) accompanied by Sister Catherine (Bedford).

Together we all listened and learned about one another as we were invited to share about ourselves. Sister Ona then shared a reflective visual history starting with Jesus, moving to Marguerite Bourgeoys’s journey, and photos of the first convents in areas of the world as the congrgation expanded internationally as well as photos of more recent ministries. This was followed by sharing our reflections, discussion and Q&A’s.

Our visit was a living experience of interculturality and a witness of the Charism of St. Marguerite being lived out today. As a group we felt very blessed and grateful to have Sisters Agnes, Ercilia, Ona, Danielle and Sophie with us enhancing our relationship as associates in the Congregation de Notre-Dame Community.
