Associate Relationship

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.

Kindling the Energies of Love: Webinar with Sister Maco Cassetta, CND

Wednesday, November 9, 2016 (2 pm Central Time)

We stand at an evolutionary juncture that is fostered by a deep yearning to be co-creators of the Universe. Led by the energies of that first primordial fire of the Divine, we are in communion with the Universe, Earth, and God. We strive, as sexual beings, to evolve and engage in life, seeking deeper understanding, interconnectivity and love. In this webinar, participants will explore how these energies within ourselves and beyond have evolved from that first fire that drove evolution. We will explore what God has intended for us all along.

"Some day after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides, and gravity, we will harness for God the energies of love, and then, for the second time in the history of the world, we will have discovered fire."

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Essay: "The Evolution of Chastity", 1934.

Presenter: Maco Cassetta, CND, is a member of the Congregation of Notre Dame, a psychotherapist, and spiritual mentor. Based in New York, she is Director of Formation for her congregation.
