American Thanksgiving was the occasion for a “last supper” with the Queenship of Mary Community here in Ottawa last night.

The Sisters have been good friends during my time in Ottawa.  It’s a joy to see them settling into a routine of life in their new convent in Metcalfe.

I told Mother Mary Bernadette that when we arrived last night I immediately felt “peace,” and on entering the quiet and calm of the convent I looked forward to the day when they have their retreat house.  Please pray that this will come about before too long, and please also pray for the women whom the Lord is calling to join the QMC as postulants next August.

Sorry for blurry shot, but here is Fr Matthew Wertin with the Sisters, enjoying the feast prepared for us!
