The Congregation of the Queenship of Mary

May 4, 2015

Mercy Convent had a visit from a new religious community, the “Queenship of Mary” from Ottawa.

Their foundress, Mother Mary Bernadette, had been in  St. John’s in 2014 and had stayed at Mercy Convent.  The whole community of seven members is in St. John’s from April 30 to May 7, 2015 to attend a vocations discernment weekend at Mary Queen of the World Parish and also a mission at Corpus Christi Parish.
Four sisters are staying at McAuley Convent and three at St. Bride’s Convent.  They drove from Ottawa in a mini-van staying overnight with the Sisters of Charity in St. John, New Brunswick and also at St. Catherine’s Renewal Centre in Grand Falls.
It was interesting to hear of their call and response to the Spirit.  Pictured above is the whole community with Sisters Maureen O’Keefe and Margie Taylor at Mercy Convent.  To the left is Mother Mary Bernadette, the foundress, with Sister Rosemary Ryan.
May God’s blessings be with them in their founding years.
