Birthday Celebration

On Sunday, January 23, for the first time in many months, the Congregation de Notre-Dame Sisters in Providence Motherhouse were able to gather for a celebration. The occasion was the 97th birthday of Sister Anne Coffey. On this wintry day, our hearts were warmed by our ability to see one another and spend some social time. Following the health care protocols we gathered in the main dining room to honour Anne. After presenting Anne with a gift, the festivities continued with everyone indulging in a delicious birthday cake and ice cream, along with other treats. We were so glad that Anne provided us with a chance to come together again to celebrate. Thanks to Sister Pat Arsenault and Sister Mildred Chabassol who prepared the party.

From the Formation Corner

Last Fall we engaged in a book club conversation on Maria Cimperman’s book, “Religious Life for our World: Creating Communities of Hope.” The idea to have these conversations got started from our Provincial Chapter last June. One of the desires of the delegates was to engage more intentionally in conversations of the heart. At that point, I thought it would be a great idea to have a conversation around religious life and this book came to mind. A total of 24 sisters signed up to participate. What a great experience it was to share with one another on the book. It is my hope to offer another opportunity for conversation around religious life and our future. We are definitely at a crossroad and this moment in religious life has generated a lot of interest and energy around how congregations can adapt to what is been asked of us today as we respond to the cries of the world and cries of the earth.
