Celebrating St. Marguerite at the Mother House

The pandemic continues to affect us all … Like elsewhere, we were not able to celebrate the Eucharist on Marguerite’s Feast. Instead, we gathered for evening prayer in the Oratory around the heart of Marguerite. It was a very prayerful and meaningful experience as we listened to and sang hymns in various languages all composed by our Congregation de Notre-Dame sisters. It is a custom at the Mother House that every 12th day of the month the sisters gather in the Oratory for their evening prayer having the intention of praying for the Congregation around the world. After prayer, a delicious dinner was enjoyed by all in the dining room suitably decorated for the occasion. The sisters at the Mother House have welcomed a sister from Haiti to live with them while she is studying in Montreal. Marijke Gerretsen, CND

Go I Will Not Abandon You

I have only crossed the ocean a few times.
However, as I look across this bridge, I recall the number of bridges I have crossed
I take a moment to think of a woman who crossed the ocean seven times
Why? "To tell the world that they are loved."
St. Marguerite Bourgeoys heard the words "Go, I will not abandon you"
How often have I crossed over to bridge the gaps between myself
and others?

Truro News

A quick note on our meeting here yesterday… the Truro associates met on December 3rd, five associates were in attendance. We opened with a prayer-song of Welcome… Anna Rowley shared on the 40th anniversary of Associate Relationship and Social Justice Action. We also talked about our Community Sharing Project, which we will begin in 2022. This sounds exciting, and very worthwhile. Then, we enjoyed a shared Christmas meal celebration, relaxed, and hugged each other, and extended a wonderful Spiritual and a Happy Christmas time, all around.

Sincerely, Truro associate, Joan Fraser
