One of the themes of the Chapter retreat was “Where is God not where I thought God was?” This theme was helpful in setting the stage for our creative presentation.
Sisters Maureen Baldwin, Karen Kelly and Sue Kidd had met and decided on the script earlier. They created an “alphabet song” using words from the small group reports from Visitation Province. They provided us with 26 brightly coloured T-shirts and the 26 letters of the alphabet. The Visitation Province committee members who were present joined us for the presentation.
The script took the form of a Congregation of Notre Dame language school – first using traditional methods which were no longer effective for learning the language, and then deciding to try “a new way.”
