Visitation Place

Friday, September 15th was the first gathering of the Visitation Place community. Meet Shannon, Sarah and Sister Sue. We are grateful for your prayerful support. Be on the lookout for an upcoming article and photo in The Catholic Register by UPEI student Elizabeth Iwunwa. After homemade pizza, salad and ice cream we prayed using John O'Donohue's To Bless the Space Between Us "For a New Position.” We shared lines that struck us and our desires for the year. Shannon, Sarah and I then discussed how we would reach out to others to join us. In true Visitation style, we will host a BBQ September 22nd, inviting friends to "come and see." Book and synod survey discussion groups are being considered as well as volunteer opportunities. Next time, I cook and they lead prayer!

Sisters from the city were also in attendance along with sisters from Parkland. They all had an opportunity to be photographed cutting the beautiful cake. A great spirit prevailed and all were very pleased with their afternoon. Congratulations to all Jubilarians!

A Journey to Remember

On Thursday, September 7th, the sisters of Providence Mother House, associates and friends were treated to a presentation by Sister Marijke Gerretsen in which she took us on a PowerPoint journey on the El Camino. Marijke, her brother John and a friend made the pilgrimage in May of this year. With enthusiasm and wonderfully well documented information, Marijke described the details of making such a journey. Her experience was really one of “Visitation” as she recounted the many beautiful and warm hearted encounters they experienced on the way. A truly contemplative experience, her pictures spoke more than a thousand words as we delighted in the beauty of the landscape, the ancient buildings that still displayed the scars of wars fought long ago. The lodgings, rugged and primitive showed the full meaning of sharing, as Marijke described the sleeping quarters shared in a dormitory style. The whole impressive presentation was truly a gift to all who had the privilege of being there.
