Sisters in the house!
On Thursday, July 7, 2016, we were blessed with a visit from the Religious of the Virgin Mary Sisters, who were in Victoria for their Chapter Education conference. The conference happens every five years, gathering Sisters from the United States and Canada. At the conference, the direction of the Congregation is set for the next five years, and the theme this year was: Humble Servants, Called to be Prophetic Witness of Hope in Today’s World. This year’s conference was attended by 12 Sisters, from Edmonton and California, as well as Sr. Vinda and Sr. Elisa from St. Ann’s in Duncan.
These Sisters expressed so well the joy of the Gospel, filling our hallways with laughter and singing, and lifting our spirits by their presence.
While in Victoria, they took the opportunity to see the sights and visit some of our locations, including St. Ann’s in Duncan, where Sr. Vinda and Sr. Elisa, together with Fr. Jose Prakash, provide ministry to our First Nations brothers and sisters.
Thank you for sharing your time, your joy and your hearts with us, Sisters!
