Celebrating Internationality Day

Gathered in our Community Room, we prayed the Prayer Service prepared by Visitation Province. As each country in which our sisters live was named, someone placed the flag of that country in a glass on our prayer table. We prayed in solidarity with our staff which represents not only Canada, but also India, Philippines, Pakistan, China, Sri Lanka and Nigeria. We are really living in an international atmosphere. Several significant points in the prayer were highlighted as we shared what touched us in a special way. We extend our gratitude to those who prepared this service.

Advent Prayer Service: Longing For Light In The Darkness

Introduction

Leader:  During Advent, we are called to seek the light of Christ,

                even in the midst of darkness.  The prophets assure us

                that the darkness will not overcome us.  They call us to

                watch for the light.  We are called to wait, to hope, to

                trust in God.

               As we make this Advent journey in faith, we invite God’s

               light to dispel the darkness.  We ask for the grace to let go

               of any burdens or barriers that we may carry in our hearts

               as we search for the light.  We ask for the gift of

               attentiveness that we may truly see God’s loving presence within and among us.

              May our faith we renewed so that we might be light for others.

News from Visitation Province

Celebration!

Sister Melba Vásquez, a CND from Honduras, has been our guest since October 8 and will remain with us until November 30. She will then return to Montreal from where she will prepare to go on mission in New York. 

It was amidst much joy coupled with surprises that we celebrated her Silver Jubilee in Summerside, PEI on Friday, November 10. She was aware we were celebrating her but had no idea that sisters from other areas were invited. Surprise… surprise… when we gathered to pray to have twelve additional sisters present to celebrate with us including Sisters Eileen McQuaid and Ann Broderick. Thanks everyone for the beautiful CND intercultural support!
