On March 11th, some English-speaking Sisters and Associates experienced a day filled with wonderful events at the Congregational House in Longueuil. The day was divided into three parts: focus on taking a corporate stand on behalf of migrants and refugees, celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day and receiving the Acts of the 34th General Chapter held in 2016.
The day began with a presentation dedicated to the ongoing process of taking a corporate stand on behalf of migrants and refugees. Facilitated by Ingrid Lefort and Dorothy Guha, SNJM Associate, this part of the meeting provided participants with the opportunity to reflect on their perceptions of and lived experiences with strangers and to share these experiences. After this period of discussion and prayer, the Sisters voted while the Associates expressed their support for this ongoing process.
