Community News & Upcoming Events


Association of the New Covenant.

The Local Branch of the Association of the Community of the New Covenant in Denver, started again it's Monthly Gathering in September 2003, after a short summer break.

Parish Missions.

Healing Life's Hurts Parish Mission was given by Sr. Brigid and Sr. Jan, October 6 - November 11. The Sisters gave three Missions in Missouri, flew to Ontario Canada where they gave 4 more Parish Missions, then back to finish off this trip with Missions in Missouri and Kansas. In addition to meeting some wonderful folks and seeing signs and wonders performed in their midst, the Sisters had an extra blessing of going to Madonna House in Combermere, in Ontario, the place of Catherine Doherty's beginnings. Giving the Parish Mission in Barry's Bay, Ontario put the Sisters a mere 15 minutes away from Madonna House. It was a privilege to visit Catherine's Poustina and the Chapel in the woods, surrounded by lakes and rivers.

Association of the New Covenant

Gdynia, Poland

The travel for this trip is one for the books. Sisters Angeline and Jan were to leave Denver at 2:54, July 17 for Chicago. Due to bad weather in Chicago they finally left Denver around 6: 15 p.m. Once airborne and fairly close to Chicago they were in a holding pattern for thirty minutes. This comedy of errors is not over. The plane was running low on fuel by this time so they had to fly to De Moines Iowa to refuel. After sitting on the runway for forty-five minutes Sister Angeline and Sister Jan arrived in Chicago a mere four hours late. Of course, they had missed their international flight to Warsaw, had to stay overnight in Chicago and arrived in Poland one day late.

As unbelievable as it may sound, the Sisters had a similar experience on their return to Denver. To make a long story short, due to thunderstorms, connections were missed, so it was necessary to stay overnight in St. Louis. Again, they arrived one day late but safe.

Retreat and Training.

This year's Annual Follow-Up Leadership Formation was a Healing Ministry Training and Retreat, held in Gdynia, July 21-27, 2003. Fifty-one people participated from Gdynia and Suwalki.

On a free day between the Formation Training and the Board of Directors meeting the Sisters were taken to Hel (pronounced hell). Hel is a peninsula in the northeast part of Gdynia that is a famous vacation spot. Once again, due to bad weather (storms on the Baltic Sea), the boat could not get people out of Hel and back to Gdynia. So even with a ticket the Sisters were stuck in Hel, at least for a couple hours longer then was planned.

ACTS II Board of Directors Meeting.
