A photography exhibition at Marguerite-Bourgeoys Museum

Conversations of the Heart: Charlottetown

Our group met on Sunday, November 18th; enjoying, as always, the warm hospitality provided by Sister Sue Kidd. We began with the Prayer for Internationality by lighting a candle as we prayed for each country, and using as a centerpiece the flags of each country. This was followed by the continuation of our sharing personal stories which we had begun earlier in the fall. We continued to be moved by the sometimes sad but, most of all, courageous, interesting and funny stories of our CND journeys from "then until now." We hope to finish these stories at our next gathering and if our memories serve us well, hope to continue to have an appreciation and respect for one another's backgrounds and contributions to Congregation de Notre-Dame life and mission.
