Visitation Province


Our Spirited, 13 year old mission group met in beautiful Mabou on July 26 -30, 2015. Our first day together is always given over to our story telling. During that precious time, reflecting on our past year, we were invited to share an experience of presence, an encounter, or some event that opened us to a new level of consciousness. 

The song "How Then Shall I Live" was our entry into our debriefing of the Provincial Assembly. This space of time proved to be so beneficial as we shared one highlight from the Assembly that would influence our personal response to the big question, "How Then Shall I Live?" 

On behalf of Earth, we took an afternoon in between rain showers to go to the beach. That evening we had the privilege of going to Judique to personally offer our condolences to sister Margaret McDonnell on the occasion of the wake of her brother, Father Malcolm. 

Also, an important feature of our time together is always the sharing on one spiritual book we read during the year. The purpose of this is to introduce us to new and exciting reading material. 

On the last morning, we held a business meeting during which time we made plans for our gathering of next summer. 

Sincere thanks to the Sisters and Staff of Mabou for their wonderful hospitality!!!

Supersoul Sunday - If you have TV that includes the OWN network, you might want to check out Oprah’s Supersoul Sunday (12 noon – 1 pm Atlantic time). Oprah’s guests are men and women with wisdom and valuable life experience who share their ideas on a wide-ranging variety of topics and deep questions. Oprah’s new season will include Jimmy Carter (Sep. 27), the Dalai Lama, and Malala!

How is God urging us forward?

How courageous is our hope?

Are we opening ourselves to receive the new, the different?
