On Wednesday, Feb 11, 2015 fourteen Congregation of Notre Dame associates joined together in fellowship and love for their monthly gathering. We are feeling very blessed to have the presence of Sr. Marie St. Coeur, CND in our midst to help us plan and to participate at our meetings. We opened with our prayer to St. Marguerite Bourgeoys followed by the hymn “Peace is Flowing like a River” which contains the line – “setting all our captives free”. This was a precursor to the theme for our meeting about St. Josephine Bakhita. We also spoke about our own Sister Gilberte, CND and all she must have had to experience when she was in captivity.
We have been in a process of discernment for who will attend the Assembly representing associates. Five associates (Bernadette Fegan, Thelma Libbus, Dianne MacAskill, Mary McKenzie and Anna Rowley) submitted their names and completed the Discernment process. Bernadette Fegan was selected to attend the Assembly with the two associate co-coordinators. The three associates will make presentations to associates in the Maritimes this Fall about the topics discussed at the Assembly, Contemplation and Dialogue.
“Living In Life’s Flow”
Connections between Spirituality & Stress
Sept 11 - 13
Take a reflective pause from life’s busy-ness, and come on vacation with our loving God. Together, and alone in nurturing quiet, we will explore some of our Christian spiritual heritage as we ‘wonder’ over texts of Scripture, mystical writings, music and poetry. This is for associates and any interested women.
