ASSOCIATE SHARON TERRY'S TED TALK

Sharon Terry, a graduate of Waterbury Catholic High School and a CND associate, recently gave a TED talk. In it, she articulates the charism of Marguerite in the story of her quest, because of a genetic disease that her children have, to make a difference in medical research and the health of people and their families. Sharon says: "If we are open to breathing into our fear and being vulnerable with those systems and people who challenge us, our power as change makers grows exponentially.” She describes her spiritual work as feeding her outer work and vice~versa.

Visitation Place

This spring, I was given permission by my religious community, The Congregation of Notre Dame, to rent the house next door and then sublet to three young professional women. Visitation Place is a shared living arrangement that is faith-filled and committed to living simply by making sustainable choices. Like Mary and Elizabeth, our lives will be enriched by each other’s journey. We will share meals, prayer and volunteer outreach as our schedules allow. Women will be asked to contribute financially at subsidized costs to the upkeep of the house. Some have already expressed interest so now it is time to get concrete about the house.
