News From Congregation De Notre-Dame In Wilton

Blessed Sacrament Province

On Thanksgiving Day, 26 Sisters of the Congregation de Notre-Dame, including six from Lourdes gathered for the holiday celebration. Our “traditional” getting together had some new elements. The new venue allowed us to sit closer together in smaller groups, provided ready-to-go table settings, and most importantly allowed easy access for the Lourdes healthcare centre Sisters. In other years, we had to transport them by car! The traditional turkey and all the trimmings were cooked by our local Stop and Shop and were quite delicious! As someone from Lourdes said: It is the getting together that matters!!

Sister Marie Buckley’s wake and funeral (in typical Marie fashion) brought the Andrus and Lourdes CND communities together to grieve and also to visit one another. There was much “coming and going” with walkers, canes and wheelchairs to facilitate many happy “visitations.” As the Sisters say over and over, the best gift we give one another is that of a visit!

Speaking of visits, CND Sisters and Associates are invited to Holiday Afternoon of Visiting at Lourdes on December 27, 2017. We will be anticipating Sr. Nancy O’Neill’s January 1 Birthday, celebrating the feast of John the Evangelist (My memory is vague, but didn’t we see this day as a celebration of our affection for one another?), the Season itself, and gratitude for God’s Presence in 2017.
