Area Gathering in Cranbrook, BC

Teresa Knight, Cranbrook associate

On Saturday, May 12th, the Cranbook Associates were blessed with a visit from the provincial leadership team. Sisters Rebecca McKenna and Catherine Walker met with the Cranbrook CND Associates to bring Marguerite’s message of love for 2017—the result of a collaborative workshop between CND associates and sisters held during the CND Chapter in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. The message was twofold: One, to take more of a contemplative stance and two, to respond in hope to the peripheries in our lives. After brief introductions, Becky, Catherine and Cranbrook associate Teresa Knight shared their personal reflections about the Chapter experience. The universal theme among their reflections was that of gratitude for the opportunity for both Associates and CND sisters to come together in prayer, song, deep listening, contemplation, and ‘play’ in the drafting of a new mission statement for the next four years.

Using the beautiful analogy of an open doorway, Becky and Catherine led the associates through a contemplative process to help us discover the peripheries in our personal lives. The meeting closed with our timely recommitment ceremony. This very special visit was exactly the “shot in the arm” the Cranbrook Associates needed. Thank you, Becky and Catherine for taking the time and truly going “to the peripheries” to realize the spirit of Marguerite as present in our lives.
