Presentation of the Mosaic at the Motherhouse

On Wednesday, May 15, during the regular afternoon coffee break, the Mosaic art piece, the contribution of the CND to the international Sowing Hope for the Planet project (see the full description of the project on JPIC Icon on First Class), was unveiled to a full and expectant dining-room. The Congregational Leadership Team was present along with Motherhouse staff, Montreal area Sisters and Associates from Visitation Province and Becky McKenna and Catherine Walker who were visiting Montreal and area this past week.  We were joined by the artist, Claire Jacmin-Park who shared some reflections about her creative process. CND Social Justice Coordinator Bineta Ba introduced the project.  Project Committee member Monica Lambton also spoke, along with Congregation Leader Sr. Agnes Campbell who had just returned from UISG meetings in Rome.  She shared with us her joy in seeing an image of the Mosaic and the name of the CND in the slide presentation during the plenary there.  The original Mosaic will be on display at the Motherhouse.  It is hoped that this will be a resource for us long term as we draw on what we encounter in the images and meaning portrayed there.

A Celebration of Visitation

Leader:  As we come together today to celebrate the Feast of the Visitation, we call upon Mary, our mother in Faith and our Foundress, and ask her guidance as we strive to incarnate the Word in our world.

Opening Song:  In the Footsteps of Mary (from Visitation – K. Deignan, CND and M.A. Foley, CND)

In the footsteps of Mary we love to find the inspiration of our lives, hidden with Christ in God.

The life Mary led throughout her time on earth was the life of poverty:  a way of mystery like the Pasch of Jesus.

The life Mary led throughout her time on earth was a life of incomparable love—unified, transparent, and deep.

The life Mary led throughout her time on earth was the life of an apostle, first herald of the gospel.
