Five Sisters from the U.S. are off to Montreal this week for a week of international Vocation-Formation meetings. Sisters Peggy Doyle, Mary Ann Rossi, Regina DeVitto, Darleen Mayo and Deanna Sabetta will gather with Congregation fo Notre Dame Sisters from around the world. We will be reviewing/updating the Congregation’s Vocation-Formation Directory (policy book), learning how to use more effectively social-media technology, and deliberating on the concerns/issues of Vocation-Formation ministry throughout the Congregation. Keep us in your prayer.
Luke’s Gospel tells us Mary of Magdala, Susanna, Joanna, and other Galilean women, travelled with Jesus and the early disciples; they supported his mission from their own financial resources. John’s gospel tells us Mary came to the empty tomb and was sent by Jesus to announce the Resurrection news to the others, who “came racing to the tomb.” (John 20:17-18).
The response by the Obama Administration and members of Congress to the influx of migrant children at the US-Mexico border becomes more worrisome by the day. The latest move is to propose changes to the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) of 2008, to speed up deportations of these children.
