(01-Sept-2017): Thank you from Sr. Fleurette Sweeney

Dear Members of St. Mark’s community,
 
Thank you so much for the wonderful expressions of affection we were able to share last Sunday. You have been such a support to the practical expression of my Faith for lo, these many years. My prayer for all us as we continue on our life journeys is that we will grow in our realization of being interconnected within the one Embrace of our Loving God. There’s room for all of us in that Embrace, no matter our age, or stage of development, or understanding. It is from within that Mystery of God’s Love that I relish in a special way, the final words of Robert Frost’s poem, The Tuft of Flowers:
 
  “Men (we) work together,” I told him from the heart,
  “Whether they work together or apart.”

 
Several of you asked me to share my contact information in Halifax. It is:
  Caritas Residence
  215 Seton Road
  Halifax, NS B3M 0C9
