Our Congregation Leader, Br Martin Kenneally, and team member, Br Walter Hurley, are currently visiting Grenada in the West Indies. The visit has included a meeting with the vibrant Presentation Associates group. The gathering was attended by a large number of Associates, particularly of the younger members.

"It was wonderful because we celebrated a belated Edmund Rice Feast Day!" said Beverly Steele, a Presentation Associate. "We are delighted that Brother Martin and Brother Walter were able to visit us during their time here." 

"Our meeting included prayers and a reflection on the Presentation of Mary in the Temple by Denise Clouden, our secretary. Brother Martin then spoke to us from the heart. He spoke about our lives as Associates, and how we should balanced a life of prayer, life in our community, reaching out to others and embracing the environment and its protection.

"Following this more formal part of the meeting, we partook of a sumptuous repast provided by the Brothers. The presence of Brother Martin and Brother Walter was a great encouragement to us, and we will eagerly will look forward to their next visit to Grenada!"
