News from Visitation Province (Canada)

Last Sunday we celebrated Mary Meagher and Monica Branchaud’s Birthdays in grand style! This time the “invited guests” were the sisters from Marian 1 and 2. It was wonderful being together sharing stories. Mary recalled with much delight some of her childhood memories on the farm.  Monica was happy to be there with everyone. It was one of her first celebrations in Kingston. We kept our distance as we chatted and enjoyed some cheer and cake. When it came time for the photo, we momentarily got a little closer and took off our masks! Yet, in spite of these restrictions, as always “a good time was had by all”!

COVID-19 outbreak at Résidence Bon-Secours

The Sisters of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame confirm that 64 sisters and 28 employees at Résidence Bon-Secours have tested positive for COVID-19. Located in Montreal, Résidence Bon-Secours is an infirmary for older sisters or those with a more fragile health. All necessary health protocols were implemented to treat the sick and best protect the residents and staff members.

We are fully confident in the ability of the CIUSSS du Centre-Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal, members of the Résidence Bon-Secours crisis centre, regular staff working overtime and members of the Red Cross. May all these individuals be kindly thanked for their dedication. Our prayers are with them.
