September was a wonderful month for many events connected to the on-going development of Associate Relationship in Visitation Province.
On September 17th, the North American Conference of Associates and Religious (NACAR) gathered at Villa Consolata, Howe Island, ON, for one of three workshops on: Celebrating Our Charisms Alive in the World. Celebrating NACAR’s 20th anniversary, it was a first Canadian conference hosted by our CND associate coordinators. Over 78 sisters and associates of 5 different communities came together and enjoyed a meaningful facilitation by Mercy associate, Kathleen Wade. Those present were led in a contemplative exploration of associate-religious relationship, especially focused on leadership for the future and how all are called to discover and share personal gifts and community charisms.
