Meeting of the Sisters, Associates and Friends

3- in England - Date of publication 06-01-2005
Sunday 27th February 2005 - The British associates of the Sisters of Charity of Our Lady of Evron met with some of the sisters and friends at Henesy House in the Memorial Hall built above St. Patrick's Church in Collyhurst, Manchester.

There has been a Catholic Church on this site in Livesey Street since 1832.
The first Catholic Lord Mayor of Manchester, Sir Daniel McCabe, came from this Parish. It was Sir Daniel McCabe who, one day in the year 1900, escorted Father Achille Ratti (later to be Pope Pius X1) into St. Patrick's Presbytery.

Our meeting began with a meditation on the Gospel of the day, Jesus meeting with the Samaritan woman at the well. We then shared slides and photographs of our wonderful week in Evron where we had walked in the footsteps of Mère Thulard. We also shared slides, photographs and memories of our visit to Filey to celebrate the Sisters' arrival in England in October 1904.

We were happy to meet Sister Jacinta who was home from our new mission in Peru. She shared news and photographs with us of the house, the school, and the chapel where most of the parish activities take place and where the choir rehearse on Saturdays. We were struck by the thought that water is only delivered two or three times a week…. The sisters next project is to build a schoolroom where the children can do their homework.

Over a hundred children made their First Holy Communion wearing white ponchos over their uniforms. The area where the sisters live is called Jicamarca. The standard of living is very low and there is much poverty by our standards. Sister Jacinta told us that the people were friendly and helpful and are very grateful for all they have.
We promised our prayers and support and gave Sister the proceeds from a small raffle.

We finished our afternoon with prayer. Recalling our Baptism, we washed and dried each other's hands promising to continue our work in the footsteps of Mère Thulard in Charity, Simplicity, Union and Humility.

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.

Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that a young woman, one of my relatives (Sister Marie-Louise Recton, first provincial of the sisters of Evron in Canada) would have had such a lasting effect on a community.

The Fort Saskatchewan Associates meet on a monthly basis after the 11:00 mass, usually at Our Lady of Angels Parish church hall if the meeting rooms are not being used. This has provided us the opportunity to have Fathers Francis and John join us on several occasions.
