Monday 9:30 AM
From April 21-26 our Sisters will gather for our 26th General Chapter. Easter week is such a graced time to come together as we celebrate the Pascal Mystery and Jesus’ call to rise and go forth to minister to God’s people. Just as Mary and the apostles gathered after the resurrection\, we too will come together in prayer, community, conversation, reflection and decision-making in the name of Jesus, confident that God’s Spirit will be with us.

Our General Chapter theme “Passionate Hearts: Kindle God’s Call, Capture the Dream” will focus our conversations in determining and embracing a specific direction for our congregation for the next five years. It will also provide the
lens through which we will elect Sisters to lead us in fulfilling our Chapter vision.

Please join with us each day in praying our community prayer: “Heart of Jesus burning with love for us, enflame our hearts with love for you.” May this sacred event kindle our hearts and impassion us to be women religious capturing God’s dream and burning with love for God’s people.
