The associates


3- in England - Date of publication 03-11-2010
The Associates and some Sisters recently made some pilgrimages. One of these was to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Walsingham which is in the east of England.

The Sanctuary dates from 1061 and was frequented by many kings saints among whom were Henry V111 and Thomas More.

There is a relic of Thomas More in the altar of reconciliation. Nearby there is the "Slipper Chapel" which dates back to the time of the Franciscan Friars who held a market authorised by the town. The pilgrims, when passing by the market, took off their shoes and walked barefoot to the shrine. The tradition continues today.

There is also an Anglican sanctuary which can be visited. Ecumenism is very strong here. There is great mutual respect. A Russian orthodox chapel is in the village.

A group of deaf people also made a pilgrimage to Medjugorie with Sister Maria. They lit a candle for all our intentions.

The Charism

In May, Sister Anne-Marie explained the charism of the Congregation to us. She gave us some guidelines for reflection and in July we met to share the fruit of this reflection. Sister Monica, who made the pilgrimage "in the footsteps of St Paul" with the Salford diocese, came to tell us about her experience. She also spoke to us about Pope Benedict's letter for the "year of the priest". The year began on 19th June coinciding with the feasts of our martyred sisters and the Sacred Heart.

Sisters Catherine Deely and Marie-Marcella Kirwan were present. They showed us photos of their mission.

Margaret Haigh, one of our members, represented us at the centenary celebrations in Canada. She carried with her our best wishes and the assurance of our prayers to the Canadian Sisters and Associates.

We wish them all "ad multos annos."

The meeting of the Associates that took place in October was, as you can imagine, a time for sharing what happened in Evron and in Canada for the Centenary of the sisters’ arrival.
A hundred years… That can be understood in various ways

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.
The Bonnyville Associates

Of course it goes without saying that Associates are active in the Church and their local parishes.  One activity that several of the Bonnyville Associates are involved in is that of the LIVE-IN SOCIETY.
