News from The Convent “Eltuek Arts Centre”

Great things are happening at The Convent, the former Holy Angels High School, in Sydney now under the direction of New Dawn Enterprises. The corridors are alive with artistic creativity, bustling collaborative endeavours and various outreach programs focused on community development in the greater Cape Breton area. Central to the collaborative, inclusive mission of the Convent is a desire to enhance community reconciliation by honouring the traditional territory of the Mi’kmaq on which they are located. On October 29, 2021, during a sunrise service with Mi’kmaw elders, the Convent will be renamed the Eltuek Arts Centre. Eltuek (el-do-ehg) is a Mi’kmaw word that notes a process of creation that is continuous, inclusive, and accessible. It means “We are making (it) together.” It refers to whatever we decide to make – art, food, music, social change, a bright future. Let us celebrate this good news story of collaboration, transformation, and new life!

Our hearts brimming with joy, we said goodbye to the sisters of the Yaoundé community and exchanged warm embraces. It was such a heartwarming moment.

Praying the Rosary at Parkland Cape Breton

Ever since our move to Parkland Cape Breton, our Associates have been coming each month to recite the rosary with the sisters and residents. For ten years they have constantly shown up no matter how few of us. I like to call them ' Constant Hearts.' Begun by the New Victora Associates, they have been joined by other associate groups. Parkland provides tea and coffee. The Associates also present special programs at Christmas and the Way of the Cross during Lent. We are grateful and edified by their constancy.
