STIR 

Have you noticed these STIR announcements on Facebook and other social media? In July 2020, Sr. Sheila Sullivan, Arleen D Souza (a young adult whom we met at Theology on Tap) and Sr. Josephine Badali began to gather bi-weekly with young adults via Zoom for an hour of Lectio Divina prayer. The prayer is simple and the sharing is profound. The group varies. We are generally around 12 in the group: young women and men and three of us “older” women. There is a woman from Argentina who joins us regularly, as others from Prince Edward Island, Montreal and Toronto. We now meet every three (3) weeks. Our next gathering will be at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 26. Perhaps you know a young adult who would be interested in joining us. Just send us their name and email address and we will send the Zoom link close to the date of the prayer. Also, if you see the ad on the social network, please share it. This will allow us to reach a greater audience. Thanks for your prayerful support. Sheila Sullivan and Josephine Badali

Marguerite Bourgeoys 400th Anniversary Retreat

Sixteen sisters and associates responded to Sisters Jo, Sheila and Maura’s invitation to pray the 400th Retreat together. We gathered on four Monday mornings and shared our personal reflections on the wonderful and inspiring material: In the Garden of Our Common Home with Marguerite. During our last gathering this past Monday, we were asked for a word that has evoked within us during our shared retreat experience. The word cloud is a collection of what surfaced and a glimpse into the richness of the group. May Marguerite continue to inspire, guide and unite us during this year of uncertainty!

IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF JESUS PILGRIM

AND A MIGRANT, REFUGEE, DISPLACED AND MOBILE MARGUERITE BOURGEOYS

As Jesus taught, in the footsteps of Mary our Teacher, and as experienced by so many people in the world who are Migrants, Refugees, Displaced, Mobile, 400 years after the birth of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys we celebrate the joy of living and being pilgrims for life; pilgrims in our way of living and celebrating our faith; and pilgrims accompanying humanity, a humanity that does not stop moving forward in search of meaning, food, shelter, work, health, love, peace, justice, security, liberty, truth, God.
