Happy Thanksgiving... and November Highlights

Like many Americans, we had the great joy of gathering last night to express our gratitude to our creator for the many blessings bestowed upon us.  During this time of gratitude, we are mindful of everyone who is so vital to us through support and prayers! 

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, please receive from the community at the CDN our gratitude and sincerest wishes for a peaceful day. We hope that you had a very happy Thanksgiving.  

The Inter Collaborative Novitiate had the insightful opportunity to celebrate the diverse cultural richness of its members as part of October meeting hosted by the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate in Godfrey, IL. During the gathering, the INC group learned about cultural understanding and were able to experience the Indian festival of lights, Diwali, and Dia De Los Muertos. The gathering feature food, music and multicultural understating. 

The delightful sites of autumn and the energy of the supper moon provided the perfect setting for our ICN seminar on centering prayer.  The seminar lead by father William Sheehan, OMI and took place at the beautiful mother house of the School Sisters of Notre Dame in St. Louis, MO.
