Thank you, Nina! Welcome, Maureen!

Dear Nina,

Our hearts are filled with gratitude for the blessing you have been to Associate Relationship and especially to the Coordinators these past four years. You have: encouraged our gifts, supported our ideas, celebrated our accomplishments, lived mutuality and showed extreme patience in light of e-mail discussion that numbered in the double digits.

We ask Mary and Marguerite to journey with you as you set up home in Ottawa and discover your new life. May the Creator bless you with the love and laughter of family, friends and Sisters.

Know that you are in our hearts and prayers. Peace.
