Charlottetown Birthday Celebration-100 YEARS YOUNG!

June 10th was a very eventful day for our Sister Sally MacPherson. Her 100th birthday had arrived. It was also special for her sister Magdalene who is a resident here. Her brother George paid a visit in the morning. In the early afternoon, the PEI Sisters gathered in the entrance where Sally met them. She was greeted with a Happy Birthday song and the presentation of a beautiful poster. She was then escorted to the dining room where birthday greetings from Federal, Provincial, Diocesan and Visitation Province leaders were read and all the residents enjoyed cake and ice cream. In the evening, our community gathered, sang songs composed for the occasion, read special greetings from American and Canadian Sisters and enjoyed refreshments and socializing. We thank God for the gift of Sister Sally’s life.

Migration Letter to Bishops

June 17, 2021
 
Dear Cardinal Cabrera López, Archbishop Gómez, Archbishop Gonzalo de Villa y Vásquez, Archbishop Garachana Pérez and Archbishop Escobar Alas,

We are Catholic organizations from the U.S., Mexico, and Central America, working to protect migrants and improve life in the communities they are fleeing. We write to urge you to hear the cries of our brothers and sisters on the move and respond with bold leadership. This summer and fall, we have the best opportunity in a generation to make progress on core Catholic migration priorities. We need your pastoral and moral leadership to meet this moment.

The promise by a new U.S. Administration to address the root causes of migration, treat migrants humanely, and put immigrants who’ve lived in the U.S. for years, and in many cases decades, on a path to citizenship is a unique opportunity to relieve pain and suffering too long endured. This moment requires a whole Church response that is regional, united, and robust.

News from Visitation Province (Canada)

How delightful it was to gather together outside on our patio to celebrate a new moment. After a long winter of quarantine and restrictions we happily shared a McDonald’s moment prepared by our co-coordinator, Lina. It was a wonderful moment to share new life and new hope (Yes, fierce hope!) plus a few good laughs.

As we journey into the coming summer months, we continue to carry you all in our heart-thoughts and prayer. A very special remembrance in prayer for our delegates to provincial and congregation chapters. We are prayer partners with you as you continue in all of our names to discern and make decisions ‘for the life of the world.’ Thank you!

Warm summer blessings,

The sisters of Mary of Peace community Résidence Bon-Secours, Montreal
