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!

A great spirit prevailed and all were very pleased with their afternoon. Congratulations to all Jubilarians!
