NORTH EAST USA
We have 2 long time Members in our Region and a bit over 100 Associate Members, many of whom have been with the Iona Community for decades, but some of whom are brand new.
For the past 9 years or so, a group of about 20 of us have gathered in June, near St. Columba Day, to share news, worship, and to renew our vows.
States included in this Region: ME, VT, NH, MA, RI, CT and Upper NY
HOW WE WORK IN THIS REGION
There are three sub-regions in the NorthEast USA – North Country, Maine, Rhode Island – essentially performing as Family Groups, that meet regularly with various degrees of sharing, commitment, and accounting to one another. Recently Zoom has allowed at least one group to meet monthly.
KEY PARTNERS AND NETWORKS IN THIS REGION
We are all involved with our own local church communities throughout the Region – which includes many denominations. Our Regional Gathering has been at the Marie Joseph Spiritual Center in southern Maine, run by the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary. https://mariejosephspiritual.org
