The SNJM’s launch a consultation leading to its 34th General Chapter


Longueuil, Quebec, Canada – September 11, 2015 – Tomorrow, the Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM) launches a consultation process leading to its 34th General Chapter. Chapter preparations will culminate in July 2016 with a major gathering of SNJM delegates and guests. The General Chapter is the opportunity for the sisters and Associates to actively participate in the development of the life and mission of the SNJM Congration.

A participatory process
The next few months will see a series of small group meetings within the five SNJM entities: the Lesotho, Manitoba, Quebec and U.S.-Ontario Provinces and the Mission-Sector. Participants will utilize video conferencing and other innovative technologies to ensure maximum participation.

The consultations will help situate the Congregation, identify future challenges and contribute to the General Chapter's agenda, while identifying prospective candidates for the Congregation's next Leadership Team. Background documents and process materials will be distributed and explained in an effort to promote participation and enhance the dialogue.

July 2016, the main event
General Chapter delegates will be meeting from July 8 to 28, 2016 with the task of electing the next Leadership Team and identifying the Congregation's common objectives for the next five years. All major decisions will be made by consensus during this time of intense listening and of discerning God's will for the Congregation's mission in the Church and in the world.
