On January 30th the two journeying associates in Summerside, Dorothy and Jeannette, made their 1st commitment in the presence of a well-attended monthly meeting of associates and sisters. We gathered in the chapel for the celebration, facilitated by associates Louise and Aldona. They introduced the service by referring to the Sisters of the Congregation ministering in El Paso and prayed the meaningful Blessing Prayer for Sisters at the Border composed by Sr. Rosemary Sullivan of Blessed Sacrament Province. This stimulated a discussion, as well as a questioning, in particular with regards to Sister Libby who was once present and appreciated at our meetings.

Following the Reading during the service, everyone was invited to share with Jeanette and Dorothy their personal experiences of what it meant for them to be an associate. This was a very impressive moment as EVERYONE shared her experiences and commitment. Following their commitment, the new associates were warmly congratulated and welcomed by everyone present. In closing we recited the beautiful Litany of Marguerite Bourgeoys and sang: All I Have Ever Desired. It was a good experience for all in attendance. In a spirit of welcome to the Congrégation de Notre-Dame Sisters and associates’ families, Jeanette and Dorothy were then invited for dinner at the Marguerite Bourgeoys Centre to celebrate with Sisters Joan Marie and Marie L. Magnificat!
