Visitation Province

How delightful it was to gather together outside on our patio to celebrate a new moment. After a long winter of quarantine and restrictions we happily shared a McDonald’s moment prepared by our co-coordinator, Lina. It was a wonderful moment to share new life and new hope (Yes, fierce hope!) plus a few good laughs.

As we journey into the coming summer months, we continue to carry you all in our heart-thoughts and prayer. A very special remembrance in prayer for our delegates to provincial and congregation chapters. We are prayer partners with you as you continue in all of our names to discern and make decisions ‘for the life of the world.’ Thank you!

Warm summer blessings,

The sisters of Mary of Peace community Résidence Bon-Secours, Montreal

International Zoom Encounters in Kingston

Recently Sr. Monica Branchaud had the joy of re-connecting with her long-time friend in Ireland via Zoom. Monica and Helena have been good friends since they studied in the Holy Land in 1989. They have kept in touch over the years but this was a first Zoom “Face to Face” virtual chat. They enjoyed catching-up so much that it went on for over forty minutes only to be ended when it was time for lunch! Monica is so grateful and is looking forward to connecting with other friends in the future. All thanks to the IT Technology!
