How Our Lives Are Changing

How Our Lives Are Changing

Sister of Providence, Anne Hemstock, tells us how the lives of her Sisters have changed due to Covid-19.  She writes:   “Wash your hands,”, “stay home,” “social distancing,” “stay apart while staying connected,” are all themes repeated over and over everywhere. “Unfortunately, Anawim Place a small food bank operated by the Sisters in downtown Edmonton has had to close until further…

Following the Star

When I was a little girl I used to wonder what the words “traverse afar” meant.  Every year we would sing that Christmas carol, “We Three Kings” about these wise men who followed a star.  Where’d they come from, how far was it, why did they make this long journey?  Of course, over the years I learned that these men…
