Mass for Shut Ins

Winnie Odo

On October 19, 2014 the Associates with some of our local CND Sis-ters gathered at the CTV Studio in Sydney to celebrate Mass For Shut-ins with Celebrant Fr. Albert Maroun and choir under the direction of Mr. Pat Moore with friends. This was a time of really living the words of our Mission and Vision Statement “ In a Spirit of openness and mutuality with the Sisters” and also “We recognize with joy and gratitude that the Congregation of Notre Dame Associate Relationship is a gift for the Church and the world today.”

This was a time of celebration for Visitation East living mutuality with 7 Associate Groups from as far as Pictou/New Glasgow and easterly to include the Sydney Mines, St. Theresa, Holy Angels, Holy Redeemer and New Victoria Groups. We felt very blessed to have at least one Associate from each of these groups who actively took part in the varying ministries for the Celebration.

Angela McKinnon of the New Victoria Group was altar server, Mary McKenzie of the New Victoria Group proclaimed the 1st Reading, Gwen MacKinnon of the Pictou/New Glasgow Group proclaimed the 2nd Reading and Bev Mitchelitis of the Sydney Mines Group read the Prayers of the Faithful. Helen MacLean of Holy Redeemer and Lorrette Andrews of the Holy Angels Groups were the gift bearers and Theresa MacNeil of the St. Theresa Group was the Minister of the Eucharist.

In CND fashion, we enjoyed a great meal at a local restaurant after Mass with Sister’s Gwen O’Neil and Theresa Sampson along with our celebrant Fr. Maroun – God is Good!!!
