Sabbath time at Springbank

As my day for returning to Kingston has come I wish to express my deep gratitude for the three months of Sabbath time I had here at Springbank. It was a time of enrichment, relaxation and creativity. All the input and activities were centered around deepening my awareness of how “Everything is Sacred” and “All is Holy.” I have learned so much and have come to appreciate the concept of “Eco-Spirituality,” how we are all connected and that we are co-creators with God living in harmony and with a deep sense of gratitude with all beings, respecting and honoring all of God’s Creation. My new insights and awareness have touched my heart deeply.

Visit to Sainte-Marguerite-Bourgeoys School

This is the name of one school in two locations, Merrickville and Kemptville, ON. No CND has ever lived or taught in either of these towns. The name surprised us enough to ask to be invited to visit. Denise Bérubé and I went to the Merrickville location on Friday, Dec. 1. We brought along some treasures we hoped would help staff and students get to know Marguerite better. 

What an unexpected treat for us! We were welcomed so warmly. The ‘directrice’ looked over the material which included a statue of Marguerite that Denise was offering. She enthusiastically and gratefully accepted the whole package… both French and English material.

The Nativity set gets taken down from the attic, dusted off, carefully unwrapped and arranged often in the same way year after year.
