The First Visitation Province Associate Assembly

The First Visitation Province Associate Assembly, “On Fire for Mission”, saw 63 associates and sisters gather at the mother house in late May. The assembly began with a very beautiful and moving opening ritual. One could feel the love for St. Marguerite Borugeoys and the strong desire for carrying out the mission. Sisters Ona Bessette and Josephine Badali led the assembly through a process in which hearts were inflamed. The participants were also blessed to be able to celebrate a beautiful Eucharist at Bon Secours to renew their commitment and vows as associates and sisters, respectively.
