Congregation Of Notre Dame Service Project: Congregation of Notre Dame sisters and associates continue to don their shirts and contribute to simple acts of service for the good of God’s people. New projects are in the works. Connecticut sisters and associates will be gathering at Children’s Community School in Waterbury this Saturday, October 24 from to 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Associate Ellen Lynch invites participants in her own words: “We have touch up paint jobs (no climbing ladders), sorting years of papers, bills etc. into piles for keeping or shredding, cleaning out the store room and possibly some work in the library.”

In The Midwest, a group has reserved a table at the St. Jude Craft Fair to advertise the Congregation of Notre Dame call to vowed life and Associate relationship on November 7.

The Walks To End Alzheimer’s drew a large number of us to Andrus. Under the leadership of Sr. Carolyn Kinnamon, the sisters there and visiting Congregation of Notre Dame sisters “walked” and raised over $300. Not to be outdone by the indoor walk, four of us braved arctic temperatures in NYC for the Walk in Central Park. Associate Barbara Casmasina organized this event.

Something I Re-Learned at the Congregation of Notre Dame International Justice Meeting this Summer: An item costs more than its price. To the number on the price tag, you must add the social cost to the workers who produce it (wages – are they fair?) the cost to the environment (all the resources used in production and in transportation to markets) and the ethical costs involved in production. Sometimes the cheapest priced items have the highest social, environmental and ethical costs. At times, other people and the environment pay for our bargains. Sr. Rose Mary Sullivan

My Visitation Moment this week is in the form of two requests. Could you please pray that I find meaningful ministry or ministries before the snow starts flying and secondly if you feel so inspired could you share a Visitation moment from time to time? With love from Muffin and Shadow and of course myself. Cathy Crowley, CND.
