This newly formed group of 6 volunteers from across Visitation Province connected for the first time by way of a conference call on May 26th. This group originated as a response to feedback and suggestions received at our last Province Chapter.
The Congregation of Notre Dame Sisters and families gathered on Sunday June 29 to celebrate 300 years of religious profession! Two of the jubilarians were part of the move from the Notre Dame Convent on Sydney Street to their new home, Notre Dame Community at Andrews of Charlottetown who graciously hosted the open house. In a time when commitment is challenging for many, these women have adapted to change for some time. Teachers, parish pastoral associates, artists and missionaries, they continue to say “yes” to God’s invitation to life and to ministry.
The Diocese of Bridgeport is in the midst of planning for its Fourth Diocesan Synod. At a recent Vespers service, Bishop Frank Caggiano announced the four topics of the Synod. SUPPORTING THE YOUNG CHURCH is his first goal. He reminded us that the YOUNG CHURCH is NOT the future Church, but the Church NOW.
