Missioning Celebration for Réjeanne took place December 25th, 2006………

4- in Canada - Date of publication 02-10-2007
We gather to mark the passing of the flame of leadership in our Canadian Province from Mary Ellen to Réjeanne and the beginning of a new way of living our leadership……..







Mary Ellen and Réjeanne: The well used candle signifies the part of the journey already trod. The passing on of the flame signifies the journey that lies ahead of us. ‘’ The Word was the true light that enlightens us all…..Indeed, from the fullness of God we have, all of us, received----yes, grace in return for grace…..”

Cécile addresses our gathering saying, “We wish to confirm the decision emerging from the local leadership team over these past days concerning a new way of organizing leadership in our Canadian Province. Until now we’ve been accustomed to the General Leadership team naming a Provincial and Council. Now, a Provincial Coordinator is chosen from within the local leadership team and by that team.’’ Cécile continues, ‘’In the name of the congregation I confirm Réjeanne in her role and mission as Provincial Coordinator of the Canadian Province.’’

God’s promises are ever new: ‘’The Word was made flesh and lived among us……’’ Jesus, the son of God, undertook the risk to be born in our world and live among us. It is very fitting, therefore, that today the Canadian Province takes on the risk of giving birth to a new way of functioning so as to correspond best with our needs while taking into consideration today’s ever changing reality and our daily insertion in that reality.
Each sister assumes her responsibility for the animation of the life of the province and commits herself to participate as fully as possible. The commitment of each sister is expressed by the lighting of a vigil light placed together around the flame passed on to the new coordinator a flame that also calls to mind the true light, the Word made flesh. We see that the new candle that has just been lit is surrounded by the vigil lights of each of the sisters of the Canadian Province. Now it is up to each one of us to bring this light to others, to enhance the life within the province, to live our own particular mission well and as fully as circumstances permit. We have just expressed this commitment by lighting our vigil light.

At the close of this very meaningful and significant celebration Cécile encourages us with these words, ‘’God looks upon us working marvels in our favour. God grants us the energy necessary to invent and strengthen the sense of happiness and joy within us and all around us.........!’’
