From Our Leadership Team

Our October meeting was two very full days of reflection--though we did make time to celebrate Sr. Mary Anne Powers’ birthday!

We heartily endorse Sr. Rose Mary Sullivan’s call to recommit ourselves to some aspect of the 2016-2021 Orientation.

“Sparks on Fire” Retreat Held at St Joseph Renewal Centre

St Joseph Renewal Centre in Mabou, NS, welcomed Associates from across the Maritimes on the last weekend in September. Sisters Theresa Sampson, Catherine MacEachern and Isobel McLellan also participated in the Retreat. Sr. Eleanor McCloskey and Associate Coordinator Anna Rowley facilitated the Retreat on the theme of “Sparks of Sacred Fire”. It was a lovely weekend of education, prayer, reflection, discussion, remembering, sharing stories, looking at photos, musical entertainment from the Sisters neighbours (we had a kitchen party!), some square dancing, a visitor and gratitude for our Congregation de Notre-Dame history.
