60th Anniversary Celebration

On Monday, June 22nd, the sisters of de Sève residence celebrated Monica Branchaud’s Diamond Jubilee of Religious Life. The festivities began with a Prayer Service and a presentation of our gift.  Following this, we had a bit of a “Happy Hour” and an evening meal. The honoree chose the menu which all of us enjoyed.  Afterwards, we returned to the community room for some fun which included a PowerPoint presentation illustrating different events in Monica’s life and a melody of hits from the 1950’s and the 1960’s. Most of us are of an age that we could actually remember the lyrics and sing along with the music! We thanked Monica for her dedicated life of service within our Congregation. May she continue to follow the path which God presents to her daily.

When one door closes…    

Sister Marie St. Coeur in Miramichi, NB, left #97 and moved into her new home. Last week I journeyed over there for a visit; we went to lunch at Kingsway, following all the safety protocols.  CND Associates and St. Marguerite Bourgeoys parishioners (St. Mary’s Church) are happy Marie has relocated close by. They all wish her well in her new venture.

Saturday, June 27th 

After Mass on June 27th, parishioners of St. Gertrude’s Church in Woodstock (now St. John the Baptist Parish) will have a tree planting/blessing ceremony. Two maple trees will grow in the green space where the Convent once stood; one tree commemorating the 100th Anniversary of CWL in Canada, and another the 400th Anniversary of the birth of Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys. At a later date, plaques will be placed; perhaps at a time when a reception of some kind can be organized. We will be thinking of all the CND’s who were here, women who lived here and joined these generous people in ministry.
