News from Visitation Province (Canada)

The fall is a wonderful time for a walk in the woods, and on Friday, September 10 and Saturday, September 11, almost 30 sisters and associates did just that, although virtually. “Roots and Fruits: Growing Together for the Life of the World,” was the theme of this year’s Howe Island Virtual Gathering. Based on inspiration from the TV Ontario documentary, “Borealis” and facilitated by Ann Gotfryd, we considered the trees and most especially the forest and how mystically amazing its unforgettable music sings to us of the interconnectedness of creation. We reflected on what motivates and nourishes us and how that nourishment can be brought to the world. We considered how a forest cultivates new growth. Jacqueline Fehlner and Mary Myers provided insight into the General and Provincial Chapters and we spent time considering the new orientation and the growth and change we must consider as a result.

A Special Visitation Moment in Kingston

On Tuesday, August 24, Congregation de Notre-Dame Sisters at Providence Mother House in Kingston received a special visit from Sister Becky McKenna. Sister Becky was on vacation in Ottawa and decided to come to Kingston to see us after such a long time had passed since she had been able to come. We all gathered in the gazebo on the spacious and verdant grounds on a very warm and humid afternoon. For us, it was an Emmaus moment as we listened to Becky describe to us her experience of the General Chapter. Among the facts and different topics of the Chapter discussions, Becky shared with us the spirit of the Chapter. As she spoke of the spirit of openness, and the expressions of joy, enthusiasm and hope that informed the experience, our hearts too were burning within us with same spirit. She explained to us that the meaning of interculturality was approached in a broader sense to include intergenerational living, inter community experience and our connection with international and multicultural persons within our own living situation. Needless to say, we all came away from this visitation encounter with deep appreciation and gratitude to Becky for having taken the time to come to us.

Eleanor Monahan, CND
