New Coordinator at Namur
by Sr. Christiane Houet, SNDdeN
I accepted with joy this ministry as Coordinator of the Heritage Centre in Namur. We rejoice in it because of its beauty as well as its goodness; don’t they lead us to God? Our century has need more than ever of witnesses whose lives are explained only by the action of God. I count especially on God’s help and that of others without which nothing will be possible for me! To transmit the story of Julie and Françoise and to actualize it has been my challenge during my 13 years lived with many others in Cuvilly, France.
Sisters Margaret Walsh and Christiane Houet (left to right: Sisters 7 and 8) welcome seven Coesfeld Sisters of Notre Dame from India in their visit to the Heritage Centre.
The charism of our foundresses does not limit itself to history; it is lived history today in each one of the persons allowing themselves to be inspired by this spirituality. That is why it is imperative to continue to maintain these communications! Certainly the material and artistic realizations of the Heritage Centre site contine to enchant all our visitors. We rejoice in its Beauty. I perceive therefore this place as a tool for evengelization, a place of meditation and of interiority for our contemporaries from the youngest to the oldest.
Whoever is welcomed at the entrance by the signature of St. Julie is able to leave with a personal letter signed by the hand of Julie herself….
