Congregation de Notre-Dame included in UISG Plenary Presentation

The UISG Campaign 'Sowing Hope for the Planet' has connected with more than 400 congregations inviting them to share together regarding the goal of bringing the message of the Laudato Si’ Encyclical Letter to life. Last May many Superior Generals gathered in Rome where a video was presented on the actions of several Congregations. Sr. Agnes Campbell was there and told us how proud she was to see the name of the Congregation de Notre-Dame on the video. At the presentation of the social justice mosaic at the mother house last May, Sr. Agnes remarked that the whole project is even more significant for her now that she is aware of the meaning behind the mosaic. The video is available in eight languages. It is wonderful to see the many and varied actions from around the world, and exciting to see that we are not the only community with an artistic contribution. New things are happening!

You can watch the English version here - the Congregation de Notre-Dame content is at the minute 9.21s:

From Our Leadership Team

Itinerancy is a fundamental disposition of the heart, a posture of readiness for God’s compelling claim on our lives for mission. 

Some things simply come to an end: . . . our work, living situations, life itself. There is no choice but to let go and to move forward into the unknown.

But itinerancy of the heart is chosen, cultivated. It is not an automatic posture, given the human tendency to settle into the familiar. But it is a virtue long honored in religious life. Inner itinerancy keeps us appropriately dislodged for outer movement towards the God who is coming to us from the future.

These words from “Celebrating Itinerancy” by Pat Farrell, OSF (from LCWR Update, May 2013) inspired and challenged us during our November 2-3 meeting. We invite you to bring them to your reflection and prayer as well.
