ARCAN Conference 2017

June 3-4, Halifax, NS. Greening Our Hearts was the theme of the gathering of 82 participants representing Atlantic Religious Communities. Dolores Hall was the presenter. Through music, poetry and time touching on contemporary reflection topics, she led us into some familiar space and also some new terrain. Dolores mentioned the serious concern around bees; we know of 700 species of bees and all are in danger of extinction, largely due to pesticides. Our food supply depends on bees! The issue of bottled water – selling our water supply – was raised. We need to be aware but always to cultivate hope. Dolores shared on the Instruction for Living a Life, from Mary Oliver: 1. Pay attention. 2. Be grateful. 3. Tell about it. She assured us we are carriers of great charisms. “The church has need of you,” she said.

Visitations Abound!

Our three-day retreat at Andrews of Charlottetown facilitated by Sister Becky McKenna, May 29-31, was an excellent preparation for the Feast of the Visitation. Sister Becky spoke to us of Visitation encounters in our daily living, helped us reflect on the fact that each of us is the Beloved of God, led us into Praying with Breath, and much more. As usual, the genuineness of her message, the inspiring music and visuals, and the prayerful handouts contributed to a powerful retreat experience. Father John Lacey presided at our Eucharistic celebrations and gave us the Sacrament of the Sick.

On our Feast day, we were blessed with the presence of almost all of our PEI CND Sisters and our candidate Libby. At the Eucharist, we renewed our vows in English and French. We enjoyed a delicious lobster dinner with the other residents. This special occasion was also a time to celebrate our Jubilarians, Sisters Lorraine Arsenault (60) and Marie-Norma Gallant (50) – true VISITATION experiences!
