The General Council’s visit to Trois- Rivières was an exceptional one considering that we have been living in our new residence only since the month of July.
Each one of us expressed herself on the ‘bounds’ that we have to overcome.
A new home other than Kermaria
Each one of us had to find her reference points in this new environment, our new HOME. The boundary we need to overcome is first and foremost not to give in to isolation but to live community otherwise.
Sharing on a daily basis with the Ursuline and Carmelite Sisters
To live with another religious Congregation is, according to me, prophetic; that is, to be Church differently aligned with, and respective of, each one’s charism.
Welcoming Lay People
The arrival of lay people is another enriching asset:
- the laity coming to us
- getting out of our routines
- opening up to the wealth of diversity.
A tiny seed
The General Council gave each one of us a seed-pack, symbol of the hope that dwells in us. We are very grateful to the General Council for having been so attentive to our new reality.
