Birthdays and gatherings!

Kingston Celebrates: March is a special month for the Sisters of Kingston. We celebrate five birthdays, St. Patrick’s Day and the feast of St. Joseph. Beginning on March 16th a number of the sisters met at 25 Mackenzie to anticipate St. Patrick’s Day and the birthday of our own Sr. Pat Arsenault. The following day on March 17th we gathered at the Providence Motherhouse to celebrate all things Irish plus Sisters Grace Martin, Emily Doherty, Ruth Penny, Josephine Nestman and Pat Arsenault. It was a glorious gathering, as everyone went green and participated in songs, jokes, cake and a touch of the “creature”. March 19th we came together again with the Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph to celebrate their paternal feast day with a lovely prayer and festive supper. Now we are settling down to complete our Lent.

Lenten Reflection for March 18, 2018

I am Alicia, an Associate from the Kankakee, Illinois area, which is about 60 miles south of Chicago. This area is rich in Congregation de Notre-Dame history, beginning with the first CND mission outside of Canada in 1860. I first met the CND sisters at Bishop McNamara High School, where I graduated in 1970. On May 5th, I will celebrate my 5-year anniversary as an Associate.
