Associate Gathering

Return to news

September 9, 2020 – The fall Gathering of Associates and Sisters from Manitoba took place via Zoom, and was well attended. This format did not dampen our enthusiasm to connect with one another.

Once again this September we launched our theme for the year 20/21: The Call of our Lives Through Grace-filled Transformation

The opening prayer which was prepared by Kitty Kelly invited each of us to recognize that God’s gift of grace will accompany us as we discern the call of our lives.

Gina Hoe presented a reflection on personal transformation which included a thought provoking question – Am I open to be transformed?

We then broke into chat rooms for a time of small-group sharing guided by three questions:

  1. What do you see as out of synch, or unsettled in our world today?
  2. Do you have a sense that the Spirit is leading you to a personal transformation as you become aware of these issues?
  3. What helps you when you are faced with a need to change?

Each group was invited to report on their discussion before the evening was concluded with a blessing prayer for God’s grace as we respond to the transformative process during the coming year.
