On Saturday, September 18/21, a sunny autumn day, the sisters of Kingston living outside the Providence Motherhouse gathered at Villa Consolata on Howe Island to celebrate the Jubilee of Grace of Sister Emily Doherty, CND. It was an afternoon of prayer, song, recalling of memories and lots of laughter both by Emily and by the group gathered. We acknowledged her years of teaching, her work as the Diocesan liturgist and as Bursar at Notre Dame, Wright Crescent. Someone also recalled that she did the first reading at the Canonization of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys in Rome. As often happens when Congregation de Notre-Dame Sisters get together there was a happy hour, pizza, gifts, cake and lots of gratitude to have Emily with us.

The fall is a wonderful time for a walk in the woods, and on Friday, September 10 and Saturday, September 11, almost 30 sisters and associates did just that, although virtually. “Roots and Fruits: Growing Together for the Life of the World,” was the theme of this year’s Howe Island Virtual Gathering. Based on inspiration from the TV Ontario documentary, “Borealis” and facilitated by Ann Gotfryd, we considered the trees and most especially the forest and how mystically amazing its unforgettable music sings to us of the interconnectedness of creation. We reflected on what motivates and nourishes us and how that nourishment can be brought to the world. We considered how a forest cultivates new growth. Jacqueline Fehlner and Mary Myers provided insight into the General and Provincial Chapters and we spent time considering the new orientation and the growth and change we must consider as a result.
