Associate Relationship News - Visitation East

Winnie Odo and Marjorie Allisson-Ross, Associates

Warm Thanksgiving Greetings Everyone. Winnie and I had another meeting at the Motherhouse in Montreal this month with Sr. Nina Glinski and the other Coordinators of Visitation Province. As well, the Central Office Coordinators, Adèle Mercier and Ann Godfryd, and Monica Lambton from the Congregation of Notre Dame Visitation Province JPIC Committee (Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation), joined us for meetings. Networking and sharing of information with these individuals was very enriching. We also got to visit with many sisters who live at the mother house and some Sisters who live at the Infirmary.

Atlantic Religious Congregations Associate Network (ARCAN) Meeting – September 12-13 in Halifax

ARCAN was founded in 2002 through the wisdom and dedication of Sister Alma MacLellan, CND, and Mabou Associate Peg Madigan to “support the relationship between associates and sisters”. Through ARCAN, the congregations share experiences, learn about current trends and issues, and support one another. “For everything there is a Season” was a line used when Peg announced at the meeting that she would not be with us next season. It was humbling to hear her pride in the way ARCAN has grown over these past 12 years and she felt that our group was in good hands and assured us of her prayers for success in the future. ARCAN is represented by Sisters and Associates of several congregations in Atlantic Canada.

For four members, this was their last meeting so the group presented Peg Madigan, Sr Phyllis Gallant, Sr Frances Johnson and Liz Murnaghan with a writing pen that had the ARCAN Logo on it. Sr Phyllis Gallant was the artist who designed the Logo. You can see the Logo on the banner below.

November is a time to remember those who have gone before us. We remember our deceased family members and friends and we pay special tribute to the men and women in the Canadian Military who have given their lives for this great country.
