Marguerite Bourgeoys Relic

In early November, we received a package from the Office of Worship of the Diocese of Providence. A First Class relic of Marguerite was included with a note indicating it had been given to Father Frederick Halloran. Father Frederick’s nephew Monsignor John Halloran had saved it when going through his uncle’s things after his death. Neither Father Jeremy of the Diocese nor Monsignor John were aware of how the relic came to Father Frederick. If anyone knows anything about the history of the relic and/or knew Father Frederick, please let us know at the Province Office. I have assured Monsignor John that his uncle will continue to be remembered in our prayers.

Peace & Justice News

I thought I would approach my ministry in a different way this year. So, I am in the midst of setting up an “evolutionary” Social Justice Committee. Currently, Sisters Bea Baker, Marilyn Medinger and Anne Seeley are working with me. I am seeking Associates who have a passion for justice and might have skills in technology to join the committee.

Leadership Team’s Goal #1: We will engage the CND family of Blessed Sacrament Province in the implementation of the General Chapter 2016-2021 orientation.

Associate News

During this holiday season, many Associate Communities have been coming together to bring glad tidings to those in need and to our Senior Sisters.

The Congregation de Notre-Dame Associates and friends of Rhode Island held our annual Advent Retreat on December 3rd at the home of Kristen. The warmth of her home facilitated the warmth of our coming together to prayerfully share our personal Advent symbols and stories. In keeping with the spirit of "going to the peripheries", we adopted a homeless family from Holy Family Home for Mothers and Children run by a local parish in Providence, fulfilled their Christmas "wish lists", wrapped all the presents and readied them for Santa's sleigh. We also enjoyed all of the home made delicacies prepared by everyone for the occasion.
