Sr. Brigid had spent most of her life in a remote village in sub-Sahara, West Africa. Due to the extreme heat and the short rainy season, food was scarce.

The Second week of Advent:
Across the airways, highways and seaways the Congregation de Notre Dame Associates of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia are living mutuality with our Sisters, mindful of the little shoot that sprouted in Marguerite’s garden in 1981 called Associate Relationship.
Leaning on the shoulders of those who have gone before us, we live “visitation” as a community, proud to bring the charism of Saint Marguerite’s light to the next generation. We are a much alive group, prayerful in solidarity with everyone and with a desire to be of service to others, while trusting and embracing the future. We are very open to internationality with a global awareness of our world and the values of justice, peace and integrity for all creation.
