The associates

During this year

2- in France - Date of publication 06-28-2010
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.

On the 15th August, at the Residence in Evron, the sisters recalled through a mime the arrival of the pioneers.

 The evening ended with a thanksgiving Eucharistic celebration. A power point had been prepared on the celebrations in Canada and all those who took part enjoyed watching it.

Then the theme, "see that you are dressed for action and have your lamps lit" also translated as "the hand for labour, the heart for God" occupied a time of reflection.

In January, in spite of the rigours of winter, we gathered at 10 am to share our photos, films taken in Canada during the summer. It was an opportunity to relive the experiences for those who took part, to recall memories for those who had previously visited Alberta and rich in discovery for the others.

After the meal we spent some time reflecting on the parable of the Good Samaritan which links up with the theme: "Creators of Justice, partners in Healing".

What a surprise in March to receive a little heart accompanied by a message; many thanks to Louise Lee.

During Lent 2 questions drew our attention:

1.Fasting, giving something up... but what?

2. What is the link between Justice and Charity?

On Saturday 12th June all the French Associates will celebrate St John's feast day with a picnic/barbecue.

During the year the Emmaus group have met at regular intervals to reflect on the Word of God and deepen Benedict XV1's Encyclical "Caritas in Veritate".

Sisters, Associates and friends are invited to take part in the organised walks which provide an excellent opportunity for discovering our beautiful area. These are opportunities for getting to know one another and making new friends.

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 Fortsaskatchewan Associates

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.
