Feast of the Visitation Prayer Service

Introduction

Leader: We gather today to celebrate the Feast of the Visitation. “Visitation” refers to the momentous, intimate, and joyful encounter of Mary, the mother of Jesus, with her cousin, Elizabeth. Each woman lived a radical openness to the Holy Spirit; each needed the support and companionship of the other; each responded humbly, gently, and with great liberty of spirit to the designs of God in her life.

Marguerite-Bourgeoys Province Eco-friendly Actions

In relation to the third dimension of our mission orientation that calls us to respect our “common home,” Marguerite-Bourgeoys Province continued its eco-friendly formation-action project. In its efforts to create an irreversible and transformative movement that is beneficial to the Earth, the province has completed the third step in its process. It proposed that, from 2017 to 2021, each house adopt and implement a local plan of action. The communities more than met the expectations. The following are examples illustrating their progress:

  • -  Reduce residual waste, 100% of the houses

  • -  Prevent surplus and food waste, 94%

  • -  Reduce energy consumption, 92%

  • -  Prioritize responsible purchasing, 89%

  • -  Systematically compost food waste, 81%

    In 2019, the Comité Justice Marguerite-Bourgeoys, with the contribution of the liaison-persons from each house, will prepare a progress report of the action plans.
