We wish to share some reflections about our session on interculturality given by sisters Claudia Margarita Juárez, Debbie Warner, and Sophie Mbougoum, on July 24th and 25th, at the meeting of the new members with 15 or fewer years of religious profession, in Chofu (Japan).

These are some of the guiding principles on intercultural community life, which caught our attention.

My Experience In Tijuana – First Part

Dear Sisters and Associates, I want to share with you the first part of my reflections on my service in Tijuana.

I left on June 24th, the feast of Saint John the Baptist and the National Day of the Province of Quebec. I went as a migrant, which is to say with a small backpack and everything needed to live this experience.

We know that this is how our migrant brothers and sisters travel when they set out. I arrived in Tijuana at around nine o'clock in the evening.

July 22-23, 2019: charism

Sisters Mariana, Violaine and Jeannette gave a presentation on this theme. Their fine introduction began with the inspiration of Sister Marie-Marcelle who says, “charism is in the person non in the works.” We immediately understood that on that day we would be working on ourselves.

We very much appreciated the way our sisters presented the theme; it was practical rather than theoretical. There were times of reflections that allowed us to dig deeper within ourselves in order to answer the questions asked of us. For example: What does charism mean to me, and how do I live it in relation to Marguerite Bourgeoys? Through in-depth and personal reflections, we found many answers to these questions. In our own lives, we found concrete experiences of which we are proud and which are in keeping with the charism of Marguerite Bourgeoys.
