NB Area Day

Marjorie Allison-Ross

NB Sisters and Associates gathered at St Anthony’s Parish Hall in Fredericton on November 1. It had been 4 years since we had this opportunity to visit with one another. Sr, Eleanor McCloskey, CND, led us in prayer with a theme of “All Saints Day”. She said, “All Saints Day beckons us to some-thing beautiful. It reminds us of our great potential – the promise that lies within each of us; the promise of holiness”. As part of the prayer, we remembered the six NB Associates who had died since we last met in November 2010.

Our guest speaker for the day, Sr Della Gaudet, CND from Charlottetown provided us with an enlightening history of the life and charism of our Foundress, Marguerite Bourgeoys. Winnie and Marjorie provided an update of their Coordinator work. There were photo and book resource exhibits.

During Lunch, everyone had time to visit and share with one another what was happening in their groups. The participants were asked to provide feedback in an Evaluation to assist with planning for future Area Days. The participants said that they were thankful to be able to gather, learn, share and visit with one another.

We did learn that the first Saturday in November is not a great time for NB Associates to meet so in 2015, we’ll find a date in later October. We plan to share the feed-back summary with the Maritime Group Contacts as it may be of assistance to other groups.

A Special Thank You to Edy, Sisters Eleanor and Charlotte for their assistance with the planning!!
