News from Visitation Province (Canada)

The sisters of Mary of Peace Community at Résidence Bon-Secours planned a tea party to celebrate Bishop Wingle's birthday on Thursday September 24, 2020. The afternoon was filled with good conversation, companionship, gratitude and a great appreciation for Bishop Wingle's presence and service to the CND community. The group merrily sang happy birthday to him and expressed good wishes for continued health and happiness.

School Days

The great teaching charism of the CND community began with a young teacher called Marguerite surrounded by a group of children. Many others were inspired to follow her. This COVID-19 summer inspired me to gather twelve children ages 4 to 12 to Miss Fran’s Summer Schoolhouse. Over four weeks we studied art, poetry, story-telling, manners, correct printing and cursive writing, as well as other important things. Often parents and grandparents came to sit in on classes. Each day began with the singing of O Canada, where pines and maples grow. And Thank you God for the world so sweet. Thank You God for everything. Recess (a long one) was a most important part of each day. One mother told me her little boy woke her in the middle of the night asking, “How many hours until we go to Miss Fran’s Schoolhouse?” It was an unforgettable summer for me and for them. I highly recommend teaching children as the most beautiful and worthwhile way to spend a summer.
