Echoes from the General Chapter

General CouncilA General Chapter is a peak moment in the life of our Congregation, a time when delegates from the four corners of the earth--Europe, Africa, North and South America--gather in France to meet, share, pray, and listen to the voice of the Spirit.  The attitude is one of discernment:  where is the Spirit leading us today and into the future as we live our mission wherever we may find ourselves.  We invite the Spirit to fill each of us and our entire spiritual family with light and joy and to birth in us something new for ourselves and our world.
Chapter delegates review the  life and work of the congregation during the last six years, asking both how do they see our mission today and  what will further it in our world.  Our internationality is a major part of that reflection, shown dramatically by the election of a new General Council, whose members care for the whole Congregation.

Our new Council reflects some of the many places we find ourselves:  France, Great Britain, Nigeria, Cameroun.  We are blessed to have women of Spirit to lead us into the future!

Anne Marie FoucherWe ask all our visitors to keep our new General Leadership in your prayers:  Anne Marie Foucher, Ann Almodovar, Priscilla Madumere, Agnes Obembe, and Anne Donnelly.
