Acts of the 2016 General Chapter: Distribution of the booklet Open Wide Our Doors

Actes du 34e Chapitre general SNJM-2016

The distribution of the 2016 General Chapter Acts booklet began in January at the Lima meeting of the Peru and Brazil regions of the Missions Sector, followed by distribution in Montreal.

The distribution of this booklet, always eagerly awaited following a General Chapter, continued in January in Lesotho during the visit of three of the four members of the new Congregational Leadership Team (CLT): Sisters Linda Haydock, Mary Ellen Holohan and Kathleen Ross.

During the weeks of January and February, the booklet was distributed in the 16 Mission Centres of the U.S.-Ontario Province, while in the Manitoba Province it was handed out during the provincial meeting on January 21.

The process continued in Québec on February 18 at the birthday celebration at Maison Jésus-Marie in Longueuil. This celebration coincided with the visit of Sisters Linda Haydock and Lorna Cooney, members of the Congregational Leadership Team (CLT). With the three members of the Quebec Provincial Team, they presented the booklets to the sisters and associates who were present. Sister Linda and Sister Lorna were happy to have the opportunity to meet them and to get to know them better.

Distribution of this booklet was completed on March 11 during a day-long gathering of the Anglophone sisters and associates at the Congregational House in Longueuil.

The title of the Acts of Chapter, Open Wide Our Doors, evokes the overarching orientation of this general chapter in response to the urgent needs of our times. Integral to the vision is collaboration and partnership with others.

The Acts of the 34th General Chapter of the Congregation of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary are available in the five languages of the congregation: English, French, Portuguese, Sesotho and Spanish. your social media marketing partner
