Feast of the Visitation Celebration May 30, 2021

CND Sisters and Associates in Blessed Sacrament Province gathered on May 30 via zoom to celebrate the Feast of the Visitation. It was a joyful gathering filled with excitement, happiness, and birthday wishes for two Sisters and an Associate! Sisters renewed their vows, and Associates renewed their commitments. Below are excerpts from readings from Pope Francis and Joyce Rupp that were used during personal reflection time and small group sharing. May these excerpts continue to inspire us throughout the coming year to walk in the ways of Visitation!

Charlottetown Birthday Celebration-100 YEARS YOUNG!

June 10th was a very eventful day for our Sister Sally MacPherson. Her 100th birthday had arrived. It was also special for her sister Magdalene who is a resident here. Her brother George paid a visit in the morning. In the early afternoon, the PEI Sisters gathered in the entrance where Sally met them. She was greeted with a Happy Birthday song and the presentation of a beautiful poster. She was then escorted to the dining room where birthday greetings from Federal, Provincial, Diocesan and Visitation Province leaders were read and all the residents enjoyed cake and ice cream. In the evening, our community gathered, sang songs composed for the occasion, read special greetings from American and Canadian Sisters and enjoyed refreshments and socializing. We thank God for the gift of Sister Sally’s life.

Migration Letter to Bishops

June 17, 2021
 
Dear Cardinal Cabrera López, Archbishop Gómez, Archbishop Gonzalo de Villa y Vásquez, Archbishop Garachana Pérez and Archbishop Escobar Alas,

We are Catholic organizations from the U.S., Mexico, and Central America, working to protect migrants and improve life in the communities they are fleeing. We write to urge you to hear the cries of our brothers and sisters on the move and respond with bold leadership. This summer and fall, we have the best opportunity in a generation to make progress on core Catholic migration priorities. We need your pastoral and moral leadership to meet this moment.

The promise by a new U.S. Administration to address the root causes of migration, treat migrants humanely, and put immigrants who’ve lived in the U.S. for years, and in many cases decades, on a path to citizenship is a unique opportunity to relieve pain and suffering too long endured. This moment requires a whole Church response that is regional, united, and robust.
