Transfer of Visitation Province Responsibilities

On Tuesday, October 10th the former and new administration team members met for the transfer of Province responsibilities.

The opening prayer of our gathering inspired us with the following words:

Giver of the dream, this I ask:

for courage to take the paths the feet of my soul have always known;

for vision to see the wonders the eyes of my longing would never forget;

for stillness to hear the song the ear of my spirit will ever remember;

for daring to taste the delights the tongue of my heart forever recalls;

for wisdom to touch the depths the hands of my desire could never erase.

In the ritual of blessing, former team members symbolically blessed members of the new team and offered a bracelet of beads representing the various gifts of leadership: Wisdom; Compassion; Courage; Balance; Commitment; Vulnerability and Vision.

May the spirit abide deeply in all of us as we continue to journey forth.

Please pray for the people of Cameroon

Sister Catherine Molloy, CND, asks:  Please pray for the people of Cameroon as an on-going crisis escalates, and fear and tensions mount. A boycott of schools by parents in the English-speaking region continues, as do weekly Ghost town days. With an increase in acts of violence, a state of emergency has been declared in the region that includes Kumbo. News media report that additional military personnel are being deployed to the area as many Cameroonians at home and in the Diaspora (Europe, Africa and North America) move toward declaring the independence of Southern Cameroon on October 1st.
