Little Design Communities Rebirthing  

 

1998-2018  - Read about the founding story in Ottawa area...                                             

2018- 2019   It's now been 20 years... 

since Sr. Evelyn McGovern and Sr. Rosemary O'Toole began teaching and living the way of The Little Design in the Ottawa area. Working with their core community they prepared documents and resources. As of September 2018, there are now several small Little Design communities gathering regularly in their own homes.
 
Over the years, Sr. Rosemary O'Toole offered four sessions of the nine day program in Le Puy, France. Since 2015, Sr. Rosemary and Sr. Monica Hartnett offered the same program at Galilee Centre in Arnprior, Ontario. These sessions gave a comprehensive experience of study and living the way of Little Design. Some sisters/women went back to their homes and communities to become 'animators' of Little Design Communities in their own locales. 
 

2018-2019   We are taking a pause in offering this REBIRTHING PROGRAM to discern what the Spirit is calling us to do next...

Sisters Monica and Rosemary have studied and reflected together often over the past 25 years on The Eucharistic Letter. They share a passion and zeal for the future of our Medaillan spirituality. Both were together at the Le Puy, France session in August 2014. For the past 3 years,they facilitated the Rebirthing Little Design Experience as well as the Guided Contemplative Retreat.
