A Christmas "Pome"

The eight year old child wrote a poem as a gift. I quote it exactly as it was written:

Christmas Pome

On Christmas day

You wake up to

Presints, and

Everyone thinks it’s pleasint.

But the most pleasint thing of all is

Jesus being born.

Our hearts are broken with those of our Sisters and Associates in Central America at the devastation wrought by the two recent hurricanes, and many are asking how they can help. It is not possible for us to send money directly to the Sisters, but the General Leadership Team has sent them a sizeable contribution in the name of all in the Congregation. They recommend that those of us who wish contribute to a well-known agency based in the United States that provides aid to Central America, like Catholic Relief Services. All of us continue to carry our suffering Central American sisters and brothers in prayer.

News from Visitation Province (Canada)


Have you noticed these STIR announcements on Facebook and other social media? In July 2020, Sr. Sheila Sullivan, Arleen D Souza (a young adult whom we met at Theology on Tap) and Sr. Josephine Badali began to gather bi-weekly with young adults via Zoom for an hour of Lectio Divina prayer. The prayer is simple and the sharing is profound. The group varies. We are generally around 12 in the group: young women and men and three of us “older” women. There is a woman from Argentina who joins us regularly, as others from Prince Edward Island, Montreal and Toronto. We now meet every three (3) weeks. Our next gathering will be at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 26. Perhaps you know a young adult who would be interested in joining us. Just send us their name and email address and we will send the Zoom link close to the date of the prayer. Also, if you see the ad on the social network, please share it. This will allow us to reach a greater audience. Thanks for your prayerful support. Sheila Sullivan and Josephine Badali
