WEBINAR - on Blessed Dina Bélanger, RJM
Some of us had the opportunity to follow the webinar on Blessed Dina produced by the University of Laval in Canada in conjunction with the Centre Dina Bélanger, in celebration of her 125th birthday on April 30th. The program, entitled, “Listening to Dina Belanger - What inspiration for today?” consisted of four parts.
MOBILE CLINIC - Jean Rabel
In the mobile clinic of Jesus-Mary of Jean Rabel, we are not stopping! In the team we have (left to right): myself, Sr. Valle Chías González-Blanch, RJM, a doctor, Sherline Petit-Homme, a nursing assistant, Celestin Cereste, who is in charge of malnourished minors, and Wadly Lordeus, the driver.
ADIOS Y GRACIAS. . . FAREWELL TO JOAN OF ARC RESIDENCE - San Diego, CA
Eighty-four years of presence and hospitality is no small accomplishment. For the Religious of Jesus and Mary of the United States, Joan of Arc Residence in San Diego has been a beacon and home offered to thousands of women. This past week, Sr. Margaret Perron announced that the province will close this ministry, having secured a buyer for the property. A familiar but painful experience marks this termination of an era for the province, and invites us into a new future unfolding.
FEAST OF ST. CLAUDINE - across the province (continued)
This week we continue learning about the Feast of St. Claudine celebrations across the province. First are Port-au-Prince photos taken by Sr. Rosario Fumanal, RJM, followed by Sr. Vivian Patenaude, RJM’s report on the celebration at the Marillac Residence in Wellesley Hills, MA.
On the right are the children and volunteers of the afterschool Pas a Pas program, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. It was a lovely Mass and I dared to read and speak in Creole!
HELLO FROM THE NOVITIATE HOUSE - in Madrid, Spain
The past 5 months have been a whirlwind of learning a bit about the culture, growing in my Spanish language capacity, and getting used to the new routine. Now that I feel a bit more adjusted and survived the first semester of courses I´ve been asked to write a bit about what life is like here in the community.
