News from Visitation Province (Canada)

News From Cranbrook, BC: On Sunday, August 25, the Cranbrook associates, accompanied by Sr. Nina Glinski, renewed their Associate commitments in a prayerful celebration modeled on “A Celebration of Visitation,” by E. King. We have not had a CND in our midst for several years and we were pleased and blessed to have Sr. Nina with us. She played a significant role in Associate Relationship during her time in Cranbrook and her presence was appreciated at this time of our commitment renewal. We were also delighted to have Gerri Fletcher, a long-time Cranbrook associate back with us. Gerri and her husband Brian have spent the past 11 years as missionaries in both Peru and the Diocese of Mackenzie. Their experiences are summarized here...

The Time Is Now: A Call to Uncommon Courage by Joan Chittister

Sister Joan continues to share her fire with readers. This little book is about prophetic spirituality. Joan claims there are prophets walking among us, persons who show us ways to be mindful, compassionate and willing to speak up for minorities, for women, for children and underprivileged people. There are convinced and convincing persons who challenge us to “wake up, stand up and speak up” to do what is right. (“I think differently about that”… is a good start to a dialogue.

News from Visitation Province (Canada)

With Gratitude

Dear friends, we are connected because four hundred years ago a child named Marguerite Bourgeoys came into the world. I have been blessed to be a Visitation Province coordinator for four years. In that time I have worked with wonderful coordinators, associates and sisters within our province and beyond. No matter where the road led I was always made welcome and lived many Visitation moments. Connected by our shared charism and mission our time together fed my fire and reinforced my belief that Associate Relation-ship is a gift to our world. You have supported me with prayer throughout these years: in illness, health, and the everyday unfolding of our lives. Thank you Marjorie for surprising me with a “Gratitude newsletter’; what a beautiful souvenir! To everyone who contributed, sent e-mails and cards - know your words touched me deeply. I ask for your prayers as I begin my new role within the Congregation. Holding you close to my heart and in my prayers.

In the spirit of Marguerite,

Anna Rowley
