“Fear not: for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy.”

Catherine Smith, CND

And the angel said unto them

“Fear not: for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy.”

The shepherds heard such a message and we at Andrews of Charlottetown experienced God’s calling of two of our sisters. Sister Elizabeth, who every day greeted one with a smile, died the first Sunday of Advent, November 27, 2016. She was known as one who showed joy and compassion throughout her teaching years on PEI and in her mingling with the Tahlton First Nation people at Mary Magdalene Mission in Dease Lake, BC.

Sister Kathleen received God’s loving call after five months of illness. Her sister, Joan, was present at Sister’s passing into Eternal Life. We will miss Sister Kathleen’s stories about her Grade 4 boys (now men) and the sweets that appeared time after time from her friend Delores.

Advent, a season of love, made visible by the birth of Jesus, has helped us journey through these days. We will remember the gifts these sisters were to us and break into song.

Silent Night, Holy Night

Glories stream from Heaven afar

Heavenly hosts sing, Halleluah

Christ the Saviour is born

Christ the Saviour is born.
