News from the Vocation/Formation Committee

When one door closes, another opens! For several years the Vocation/Formation Resource Committee has been hoping to have a community in Toronto which would welcome persons who wish to nurture their faith life and/or learn more about religious life. Today, we are delighted to tell you that our dream is becoming reality.

In the early new year, Marguerite Residence will become a House of Welcome. Many details remain to be worked out, but two members of our committee have agreed to get this project off the ground. Sisters Josephine Badali and Sheila Sullivan have agreed to take responsibility for this initial stage. As the project evolves, it is their hope to invite others to participate in this ministry. Please pray for this new mission.

Fourth Annual Blessed John Henry Newman Mass and Dinner

The Fourth Annual Blessed John Henry Newman Mass and Dinner was held Friday, October 26, 2018. Like the previous three years, the Provincial Leadership Team bought a table local sisters and associates to attend with students. The theme this year was “Going Global with Faith and Knowledge” and 4 students shared their experiences of Honduras, Mexico and Malta. All excursions were the beneficiary of previous Newman Dinners. Also at the dinner were the four women from Visitation Place as Elizabeth was a speaker and Emily concluded the evening with song. Arranging the photo proved challenging with a lot of laughs and a few photo crashers but our perseverance was rewarded with this great memento of the evening. Having the four from Visitation Place in the same place at the same time was another perk of the evening.
