Thanks and Appreciation – Diamond jubilees

Just a note to thank everyone who acknowledged my Diamond Jubilee via a gracious note, lovely card and greeting, flowers or the celebration of an anniversary Mass. I was truly touched to be remembered in such ways and thank you for your thoughtfulness and many kindnesses. May your goodness rebound on you a hundredfold!

Joan Trudeau, CND

Coady International Institute

Jenna Kyte and Kathleen Provost, Representatives from Coady, Antigonish, NS, met with members of the leadership team on Tuesday, September 9, 2014. Visitation Province annually sponsors a student in the Development Leadership Diploma program. This year we are sponsoring Sister Philomina Joseph, Coordinator of Women’s Empowerment Program, Diocese of Varanasi Social Welfare Society, India. She organizes activities for the integral development of women and adolescent girls to safeguard the dignity of women, and to become the voice of the voiceless. As coordinator she is involved in planning, monitoring, evaluating and networking at the organizational level. Sister Philo’s hope in coming to Coady is to learn new leadership skills and techniques to empower women and adolescents to strengthen their bargaining power for positive change. Let us keep Sister Philo in our prayer. For more info on Coady: http://www.coady.stfx.ca Sister Philomena Joseph

Climate March and International Day of Peace Gathering in Charlottetown

Several of us joined a group in front of Province House at noon on Sunday, September 21, to unite in solidarity with people around the world on this special day of the Climate March and International Day of Peace. The theme of our gathering emphasized the link between environmental stewardship, social justice, community celebration and peace. Emphasis was placed on the strengthening of this link if our dream of healing a planet in crisis is to be realized. Groups present included the Council of Canadians, the Island Peace Committee and Earth Action.

The event consisted of several speeches, entertainment relevant to the purpose of the gathering, and a short walk in union with those around the world who were walking. Sister Anne Gillis explained to the group our Congregation of Notre Dame involvement in these issues on a worldwide basis.
