General Chapter 2012
Our General Chapter began on September 30, 2012 and will conclude with the Election of a new Major Superior on Saturday October 6, 2012.
According to our Constitutions:
The purpose of the Chapter of Affairs is to provide for the general good of our Community, to encourage and increase our spiritual and apostolic vitality, and to ensure unity and constant renewal in our Community.
(Constitutions # 172)
Today, being First Friday we have a special Day of Recollection in preparation for the election of a new Major Superior tomorrow.
Sister Judith Ann in her opening address called on the Chapter members to remember that their duty is to safeguard the sacred patrimony of our Intstitute. She stated:
“God has called us together to represent our entire religious community, to be a true sign of it’s unity in love, to protect the sacred patrimony of our institute and to promote meaningful renewal faithful to that patrimony. (Code of Canon Law 631) Much is entrusted to us but we stand on firm ground, the sacred legacy of our founding Sisters, and we are supported by the wonderful prayers and sacrifices of all our Sisters.”
Please join us in asking the Holy Spirit to guide our Chapter and our community at large.
Pax et Bonum!
Sister M. Veronica, OSF
