Halifax: Celebration of Thanksgiving
Submitted by: Frankie McCormack
On the warm sunny Friday, Sept. 5, our Halifax CND Associates and Sister met at the beautiful home of Bernadette and Michael Fegan at The Head of St. Margaret’s Bay. What a special spot to be gathered in the open concept kitchen, living room-dining room, looking out through the many, large windows at the beauty of nature.
NERA, the New England Religious and Associate group, will hold its 20th gathering, Saturday, Nov. 1, 9:00 am to 3:30 pm in Holyoke, MA. The theme is A Look Back – A Step Forward. Associates and Sisters from throughout New England exchange ideas and make connections. If anyone is interested in attending, please contact Sr. Joan at email@example.com, by October 16.
Save-the-Date! Peggy and Mary Ann Rossi are hoping that as many as possible will be at Wilton on Saturday, November 15, 2014 to attend a workshop and book-signing event sponsored by the SSND's. The day will be a kick-off celebration of the 2015-Year of Consecrated Life. The workshop begins in the morning and ends with Mass at 4PM. The authors of New Generations of Catholic Sisters: The Challenge of Diversity are well-worth hearing! Engaging in their presentation, they offer an informative and eye-opening understanding of the present and future for women religious of this century.
