The day is coming soon !

2- in France - Date of publication 07-14-2004
In France, as in all of the other countries, sisters and associate members are diligently preparing for the 350th birthday celebration of Perrine Thulard

     The captivating event of this year has to do with the many preparations in view of the approaching summer festivities in honour of the 350th birthday of Perrine Thulard.
An associate from Evron, sings her muse...
               The stars sing for this third centenary
               And light up in the eyes of sisters and associates : 
               With a thousand flames and a thousand charitable projects
               All come together to celebrate this anniversary.
                    In each country, no one can remain silent
                    Their joie de vivre in a world that is welcoming
                    The orphan, the poor, celebrate the centenary;
                    All rejoice : the spirit, the soul refocuses anew...
               In this century, freely, the entire human family
               Receives from Jesus pardon, goodness,
               For Jesus wants to save all the peoples of the earth...
                     Yes, humility, simplicity, charity
                     Are modelled by our enlightened foundress :
                     Her heart at-one-ment with Mary and with the will of the Father.

Themes for our reflection this year
During this year, dedicated to Perrine, the group decided to reflect on the Foundress's message courageously seeking effective ways to actualise it given today’s circumstances :    
     • Perrine Thulard, woman of prayer and teacher of prayer
     • Perrine Thulard, servant of the poor and teacher of the servants of the poor
     • Perrine Thulard, woman of Faith and teacher of the Faith.

Another way of celebrating Perrine during the course of the year
The hiking expedition, organised during the first trimester of 2004, brought sisters, associates and friends along the sunken country lanes surrounding La Chapelle au Riboul where, so many years ago, Perrine and her companions habitually walked.

« Emmaus » Group
Inspired by the example of the disciples of Emmaus, a group of associates regularly gathered to deepen their understanding and broaden their spiritual sense of "Meeting or Encounter", frequently found in the Gospel texts. During this year 2003-2004, we pondered and meditated on the scriptural sense of "Meeting or encountering" based on the following texts: Jesus and the Samaritan Woman, Jesus and Zacheus, Jesus and John the Baptist (at Jesus’ Baptism), and lastly Jesus and Pilate. On January 31st, 2004 just two days prior to "Candlemas", we met to reflect on this text from Luke 2, 22-40, focusing more particularly on Jesus Light of the Nations. At the end of our reflections together, we decided to meet with the senior sisters at the Motherhouse inviting them, in this year of Perrine, to share with us a phrase from their foundress which has been a special source of "light" for them. This sharing was both fruitful and enlightening !

Perrine has been present in the West of Canada for a hundred years in the person of the Sisters who took up a challenge and accomplished a great acheivement. Each one left her own corner of Mayenne to go to “the other end of the earth” as people said at the time and we can imagine the strong faith that motivated them.
