As Sisters we enjoy a variety of activities like spending time at the cottage, walking, sing songs, playing card games, storytelling, attending ceilidhs, concerts and sporting events, watching movies, family visits, traveling, reading, and sharing special meals.
Some Martha Sisters participated in Cycling with Sisters bicycle ride on October 3rd as they cycled round trip Rails to Trail from St. Peter's Bay to Morell.
Cycling with Sisters aims to create a shared spiritual adventure for Sisters and local communities through bike rides. with focused prayer stops during the ride.
Themes for this ride included journey, poverty, mental health, creation and mission. It was wonderful to share the experience with the Sisters from Congregation of Notre Dame and Notre Dame de Sacre Coeur and various friends.
A few of the sisters gathered July 17 to celebrate our Foundation Day . Our congregation was founded 104 years ago
