News from Visitation Province (Canada)

Our Conversations of the Heart group has been gathering monthly since February 2012. Our time together includes a check-in, time for contemplative prayer, reflection and dialogue on our designated topic, followed by supper together. Members assume leadership of our gatherings. On Sunday, June 17th, we shifted our place to Montague and our agenda to "feast"! We enjoyed well-cooked lobsters from North Rustico. Even without an agenda, our conversation touched on some current topics – the presence of Buddhist nuns in the Montague area and how we minister to young people in our midst. We enjoyed the warm summertime sky and countryside including the space we had, deck and all. We missed Anne and Noreen and look forward to September's re-grouping.
