After twelve years we bring our ministry to a close in Benoit’s Cove. It is very obvious that Marguerite is present amongst the parish community and throughout all Western Newfoundland. The presence of Sister Ann Broderick during the week gave us great support amidst the sadness of departure. The closing celebration (May 1) brought people from all over the diocese, surprising us with a packed church and a celebration of life, gratitude and hope for the future. Bishop Hundt and priests were present, along with clergy from other denominations. There were many tears amidst the farewells. The town and school also honoured us for our active participation in all aspects of their lives. As sad as our leaving is, we are encouraged with the words shared: “You have made your mark on our community and you will never be forgotten.” We thank so many of you who have supported our ministry in ‘the out ports,’ through prayer, visits, calls and mail. Now, to pack and to make our way to Kingston, Ontario for the next step of our CND journey!
