North American Retreat - registration, fundraising

26 people are already registered for the North American retreat next September. The North American committee had booked for 30 people, but Pickering's Manresa Retreat Center can offer more spaces.

Retreat 2019

Please register early
To assist in planning, the North American Committee and the Retreat Center would appreciate the registration as soon as possible. So, if you have chosen to come to the retreat, please do not wait to send your registration form to Isabelle Frappier.

Fundraising
Fundraising for the retreat is in progress. The cost of boarding and transportation may be too high for the financial capacity of some people. But lack of money should not be a barrier to go to the retreat. This fundraising is our form of solidarity to help those with less financial means. Many thanks to all those who have already made financial donation.

All documents about the retreat are on the website:
N.A. Retreat 2019

Thank you for your sharing and prayer for the success of this retreat.

Jean Vanier received the newsletter Heart-to-Heart. He was happy to know that retreats were taking place in our Faith and Sharing communities, and he prayed that they would bear fruit. He will continue to support us now that he is with Our Father.

Let us give thanks for his life.

North American Retreat - spreading the word

Some people are already registered for the North American retreat next September. There are still several places available.

An advertisement was sent to the Dioceses of Quebec, and it will be sent soon to the Dioceses of Ontario by the North American Committee. However, experience shows that it is often through personal invitations that people feel the call to participate in such an event.

Heart-to-Heart, April 2019

The mailing of the next Heart-to-Heart bulletin will include a retreat brochure, a registration form and a fundraising donation form. Subscribers will receive their bulletin around April 15th. This could be a good opportunity to talk about the retreat in your community or with those who might be interested in participating.

These documents are on the website, as well as a press release and a poster that can serve as advertising:
N.A. Retreat 2019

Thank you for your support and prayer for the success of this retreat.

Death of Louise P. Bergeron

Louise Perrin Bergeron, from Quebec city, passed away on February 5th.
Here is a message from Jean-Claude Lizotte, Coordinator of Faith and Sharing Quebec:

Louise Bergeron

Last Tuesday, our great friend Louise left us to go to her Lord.
She was our model to all because of her attachment to Faith and Sharing.
She was very involved in our community and left us as a legacy.
She was one of the founders who gave her life for almost fifty years.

She has worked with several communities of Faith and Sharing, Sherbrooke, Montreal, Jonquiere, Chicoutimi and many others in Quebec and outside Quebec as a member of the North American committee and publisher of the North American bulletin.

The saying she often repeated with conviction was:
"Faith and Sharing one day, Faith and Sharing always."

She was very close to the poor and destitute in Quebec City. She had no barrier to help them.

Today I give thanks to the Lord for putting Louise on my way.
I learned a lot from her and her example allowed me to live in a community where it is good to meet and share our faith.

May Louise be fully happy in the arms of the Lord.
