Visitation Province Assembly

We are pleased to share information about our facilitator for the 2015 Visitation Province Assembly in Toronto. Many Congregation of Notre Dame sisters are familiar with Nancy Sylvester, IHM, through her work at General Conference and with Blessed Sacrament Province. She comes to us highly recommended. Sister Nancy founded the Institute for Communal Contemplation and Dialogue in 2002 in response to her experiences working for justice and right relationships in church and society. Sister Nancy brings her commitment to dialogue and collaborative work style and her belief that the impasse being experienced currently in the work of transformation of church and society requires a contemplative response. Sister Nancy has written several articles on contemplation for NCR’s Global Sisters Report. Her web page will tell you more.

The committee, with Sister Nancy, encourages all sisters and associates in Visitation Province to commit to reading, reflecting and dialoguing on communal contemplation. This week, we suggest reading “Contemplation: A Call to All” and “When Words Won’t Work.”

Office Of Mission Advancement News

Dear Sisters, What a pleasure it is to be ministering here as your new Director of Mission Advancement! I say “ministering” rather than “working” because the tasks I perform do not feel like work in the traditional sense of getting job stuff done. In mission advancement relationship-building is at the heart of what we do. That means for me creating relationships with you, my fellow staff members and our donors, and this does not feel like “work” at all. I look forward to meeting each of you at some point. In the meantime, if you have ideas for what we can do to enhance our rapport with our donors and further advance the Congregation of Notre Dame mission, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
