Testimonials at Marguerite-Bourgeoys Parish, Nun’s Island

Fernande Cantin, CND

On Sunday, June 11, about fifteen CND sisters attended a Mass at Marguerite- Bourgeoys Parish in honour of the parish’s patron saint, our holy foundress. The church was completely filled; the children’s choir, well directed; the parish priest, enthusiastic; and the young families, devoted. All this demonstrated that Christ lives in our world.

Our thanks to Sister Sophie Mbougoum, who played a fille du Roy, and to Sister Violaine Paradis, in the role of Marguerite Bourgeoys, for having led the interactive conference from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m.

The objective of the brief testimonials of Sister Ercilia Janeth Ferrera Erazo, Sister Angèle Ngo Ngok and Sister Fernande Cantin was to emphasize that “The heart of Marguerite Bourgeoys still beats.”

By 12:30, we had all returned to the Mother house to enjoy a friendly brunch.

Visitation is the young and the elderly meeting in mutual wonder; it is a meeting which still inspires us even after 300 years; it is a meeting which opens our hearts to the plan of God who continues to beckon us.
