This summer was a time of transitioning into new responsibilities for two area co-coordinators of Associate Relationship in Visitation Province. We gratefully welcome Karen Volpe, for the Central Region and Marjorie Allison-Ross, for the Eastern Region. Once again we extend our thanks to Ann Gotfryd and Phyllis Gallant, CND for their generous and creative service over many years.

Days of Retreat . . .

The Visitation Province Administration Team met at Seton Spirituality Centre in Terence Bay, Nova Scotia, September 2nd – 5th for shared days of retreat. Becky McKenna, CND offered short daily reflections that drew us into times of silence as well as deep sharing.

Recalling the wisdom of eco-theologian Thomas Berry, C.P., Becky suggested that we “look to Earth for guidance.” It is the source from which we come and within this web of life we find all the courage, strength and wisdom that we need to live our lives with meaning and integrity. During our days of retreat we were invited to “Come to the Water,” to know the replenishing powers of the ocean and its buoyancy, the capacity to hold us safely despite the storms. This was followed by a day of contemplating the coastal gardens all around us, wondering at the ways in which we too cultivate life, plot resurrection and delight in being part of this amazing life system.
