FOUNDING DAY OF THE PRESENTATION SISTERS
IN NL



PRESENTATION – NEWFOUNDLAND

 

They came to the bare ice-scoured land,
intrepid women whose hearts chose hope,
and in the flinty cold and year long loneliness
set faith free fires blazing on a thousand hearths
till farthest out-ports on the windy bays
heard Good News shared with the struggling poor.

Now dawn after crimson dawn,
from darkness born,
sings resurrection on the sharp, dark hills,
and daily, always pioneers, they come….


- Raphael Consedine, pbvm
