Greetings from Emmaus Group, Calgary, AB

Our group of four, Barb, Mary, Sheila, Yvonne, met for lunch on January 17th.  It was great to “catch up”.  We do not meet regularly since the Sisters left.  Geographically it is difficult.  However we do stay in touch.

We feel gratitude knowing the new building is well on the way at Bethany. Our prayer is for a peaceful transition in this new beginning.  All the Sisters who have gone through many changes since the founding of the congregation are watching over, and rejoicing with you.

We remembered SIster Yvonne Vigneault who was my classmate.  I remember very well the day we met at Bethany, and remained friends through the years.  Her gentle, pleasant personality, sense of humour and deep spirituality endeared her to all who knew her.  Heaven has been enriched.  May she rest in the presence of God with all the other Marthas who have served so well.

We enjoy our get togethers with the Martha Associates in Lethbridge.  We were with them in September 2016.  However we were unable to join them for their Christmas party due to winter driving conditions.

May 2017 bring good health, peace, and many blessings to us all.  We will continue to pray for each other and our loved ones.
