Winter/Spring 2015 Associate Newsletter: Visitation Province, West/North

Feast of the Visitation and the CND Corporate Stance

Greetings one and all,

Pentecost has come and a new season begins, that of “Ordinary Time.” To some that may sound like the valley bottom after being on the peaks of the Easter Season, but it is in the valleys that we live our daily lives, encountering our God in the ordinary and the everyday just as St. Marguerite Bourgeoys did. May our deep trust in that “ordinary” encounter sustain us and lead us to deeper love in action.

This year, as you know we are being challenged to climate action. When we renew our commitments to associate relationship this spring we are also being invited to sign our support for the Congregation of Notre Dame Corporate Stance on the environment.

We have had many special moments since January and it is with joy that we have heard all that has happened and pass the ‘good news’ to each of you.
