Week of Prayer for Christian Unity – January 18-25, 2020

Theme chosen for this year is: They showed us unusual kindness. (Acts 28:2)

Christian Unity Week has been observed since 1908. This year the invitation is to show hospitality and welcome, and risk dialogue with persons who do not share our faith, our culture, customs, traditions or language. Unusual kindness may include attentive listening, and compassionate care. For us, moving to the peripheries showing unusual kindness may be a way for us to promote unity as well as praying for it.

Celebrating St. Marguerite: Andrews of Charlottetown

On Friday, January 10th, we were happy to welcome all Sisters the Congregation de Notre-Dame in PEI to join with us in celebrating Marguerite’s Feast. We began with the liturgy of the Eucharist made very meaningful and joyful by our celebrant Fr. Bob Coady and our song leader Sister Shelley Grant. This was followed by a delicious steak dinner with all the trimmings. Much to our surprise, each of us found a personal message from Marguerite taken from her writings at our place setting. In the evening, we gathered to pray the much appreciated evening prayer prepared by our Sisters of Blessed Sacrament Province. Later, we ended the day sharing our stories about our journeys inspired by Marguerite’s life and enjoying some refreshments.
