Visitation Place

Visitation Province

Sister Susan Kidd, CND, initiated the idea of Visitation Place in the spring of 2017. She has been committed to the experience of sharing in a faith-filled community living experience with young women. These women live in half of the duplex while Susan lives in the other.  All are committed to living simply, sharing meals and prayer as well as participating in regular volunteer outreach.

Susan, Chaplain at UPEI, shares her experience of the past year.

Year One

There were many moments 12 months ago when it seemed Visitation Place would not come into being as hoped in the summer of 2017. I had ideas, lots of support, furniture even but no women. Several prospects had expressed interest but for many good reasons, could not move in. That changed in late August, first one then another and then 17 were present for an evening of prayer and dreaming.

A third woman came, the first and second left. Another arrived as the second hopes to return! Word has it there could be four in September. I am learning to wait and see.

A friend on campus has told me several times how good this project is for young adults.  A young adult says it helps “adult her faith.” The parish and neighbourhood also offer positive feedback. It has been a good year.

I am grateful for the support of the leadership team, as well as the sisters of Prince Edward Island.  We are in this together!
