Area Gathering in Cranbrook, BC

On Saturday, May 12th, the Cranbook Associates were blessed with a visit from the provincial leadership team. Sisters Rebecca McKenna and Catherine Walker met with the Cranbrook CND Associates to bring Marguerite’s message of love for 2017—the result of a collaborative workshop between CND associates and sisters held during the CND Chapter in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. The message was twofold: One, to take more of a contemplative stance and two, to respond in hope to the peripheries in our lives. After brief introductions, Becky, Catherine and Cranbrook associate Teresa Knight shared their personal reflections about the Chapter experience. The universal theme among their reflections was that of gratitude for the opportunity for both Associates and CND sisters to come together in prayer, song, deep listening, contemplation, and ‘play’ in the drafting of a new mission statement for the next four years.

250 years of dedicated service in religious life.

Sunday, April 13th was a festive day in Toronto as we celebrated "250 years" of dedicated service in religious life.

Our gathering was held in the Taylor House, at the St. Joseph Residence, where the sisters in Toronto gathered to celebrate and honour our four Jubilarians Sisters:

  • Marie Landers -70 years of religious life
  • Frances Cresswell and Joan Lewis - 60 years and
  • Élise Corriveau - 23 years with the Oblates and 37 years in the Congréation de Notre-Dame

The afternoon began with a prayer focusing on "Joy as the Echo of God's Life Within Us", followed by a tribute dedicated to each sister and a final Jubilee Blessing.

The remainder of the afternoon gave way to the sharing of stories and experiences while enjoying some delicious treats. 

Congratulations and Best Wishes to all the Jubilarians.

Movie: Pope Francis, A Man of His Word

This film, a documentary, came out recently. It is an "interview" with Pope Francis, stretching over various places where he visited and touching on situations he encountered. The movie uses The Pope's own words, written in subtitles below.  We see, up close, the emotion in his response to questions; he shows humour and laughs, and he shows sadness. His wisdom is deep and he expresses his thoughts and his theology simply, and with confidence.  If this movie comes to where you are, do try to see it.  It is one of those not-to-be-missed productions.
