The year 2020 has been a year of many firsts. On Tuesday, November 17th, we held our first Cabrini CLM Chat via Zoom. Participants were invited to bring along their lunch and join in the conversation.
Lorraine Campanelli, the Director of the Cabrini Lay Missionaries (CLMs), spoke to a group of administrators, faculty and staff from Cabrini University, and other invited guests. The lunch time meeting opened with a beautiful prayer given by Sr. Grace Waters, MSC, followed by an introduction of Lorraine by Sr. Christine Marie Baltas, MSC
Lorraine presented information about the CLMs and how they are integral members of the Cabrini Family. She spoke about their initial formation period and the journey to making a commitment as a CLM. The participants offered wonderful comments and questions for Lorraine.
In addition to the formal presentation segment of the brown bag lunch meeting, the participants enjoyed seeing each other and having some informal, friendly conversation. There was such a beautiful spirit amongst everyone. Because of COVID, many people had not seen each other, especially in-person, in a long time. It was energizing to reconnect virtually.
Thank you to Sr. Grace, Sr. Christine Marie and Nancy Costello for arranging the meeting and inviting us to attend. Thank you, also, to Nancy Golen, the Director of the Cabrini Retreat Center in Chicago, for providing the Zoom technology. And, of course, a big thank you to all those who participated in the discussion. ~ submitted by Lorraine Campanelli, CLM Director
