We had our zoom meeting today. All but Sr. Gerrie, were able to attend,5 of us on zoom and one on phone.
the sharing was rich and important for all of us.

We start with hope, God's love is everlasting love shown through each of us by our kindness, generosity, thoughtfulness and love shown to each other.

We discussed how we are doing personally. Then we talked about the recent week of demonstrations and protests for justice and an end to racism. We also appreciate the letters written by LCWR, federation, congregation, our province and S. Paul province. we need to go beyond reading and move however we can to make changes, even if it is simply writing our local leaders to enact fair laws and just policies.

We also commented on how much the week on Laudato Si meant to all of us. The resources from the federation and congregation were excellent and helped us move beyond recycling.
