News from Visitation Province (Canada)

New Life, New Name!

Many Sisters and Associates are familiar with St. Joseph’s Convent and Renewal Centre in Mabou, Nova Scotia. Last week, Nova Scotia Premier, Iain Rankin, announced a huge investment by the Province of Nova Scotia to make the former convent a satellite campus of the Gaelic College. The building will become Mabou Hill College, or Beinn Mhabu. Following extensive renovations, the college expects to be ready for students in 2022; credit course recognition will be from Cape Breton University. Beinn Mhabu will offer a Foundation Year Program with course options to include Gaelic culture and history, executive certificates in music and ethnomusicology and more. It will house North America’s first Gaelic Medium School, and a Gaelic-based internet radio station. “Mabou Hill College will be an invaluable addition to the cultural infrastructure of Nova Scotia.” says Suzanne Lohness-Crogt, Minister of Communities, Culture and Heritage.

Ring the bells!

If you hear the church bells of the Rimouski and Gatineau, Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pocatière, Montreal (Saint-Jean-Baptiste Parish), Sherbrooke (Basilique-Cathédrale Saint-Michel) and Saint-Jean-Longueuil dioceses ring on March 19, it is in support of the Global Climate March! We, committed women and sisters of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame, commend this initiative to “ring the bells” on the day of the March to actively encourage the participating groups, respond to the call of Laudato Si’ and honour our own commitment to protect the environment. We welcome all the support for this cause that affects each and every one of us.
