Completion of the Small Plot Mission

Sisters Mary Corbett, Becky McKenna and Eileen Roach

In May 2011, two CND sisters (Eileen Roach and Becky McKenna) opened a mission in Three Brooks with a four-fold mission of Contemplation: Care for the Earth: Working the land, and Collaboration. After six years of living these commitments, we have indeed reaped a bountiful harvest, a testimony to the work of collaboration. Margaret Mead’s words are true, that a small group of people who act upon their commitments truly can make changes in the world. Our Wednesday morning contemplative group was a place of deep sharing and heartfelt presence. Among our several collaborations, the two most significant were: The Seeds of Hope Community Garden, an ecumenical project of the five Christian churches in Pictou, and the CAiRN group which brought two Syrian families to Pictou.

There is certainly a good deal of sadness in saying good-bye; however, there is also much gratitude for the new expressions of the Charism of Marguerite Bourgeoys that this mission facilitated. We wish to thank all who supported us in friendship, prayer and presence. We are leaving richer for having been there.
