Celebrating!

Sister Norma Gallant and the West Kootenay associates gathered on Sunday, January 13th to celebrate Marguerite with a pot-luck style turkey dinner at the home of associates Maurice & Janet in Castlegar. Our coming together was filled with warmth and happiness and the pure simple joy of being together. Following the noon-day meal, we remained at the table where we prayed the beautiful service provided by Blessed Sacrament Province to which we added our own music, including Kathleen Deignan’s meditative Pax Amor Christi. Sharing was deep and stories were told of times of stepping out in faith – stories from our past as well as very recent. In each case, our God was there to bring us through. Our time of prayer and sharing was very much in keeping with our current 2018-2019 focus on Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’. We were so comfortable together in our prayer and conversation that no one seemed to notice the several hours that had passed. In parting, many were heard to say, “That was so beautiful and meaningful. Again!”
