Our congregational Chapter, a blessed time to once again meet and greet Sisters I see often as well as those from far away. Catching up on the news, “how have you been?” A time to pray and a time to dream.

There are two distinct parts to every Chapter: after the Chapter of Affairs and before proceeding to the Chapter of Elections, we have a time of celebration and appreciation for the outgoing leadership.

Chapter 2015 was the second Chapter I attended as secretary and a part of me sat through the process with a keen interest to see who I would be working for over the next four years!

Reflecting on Chapter and its graces

In preparation for Chapter, we Sisters and Associates, prayed the Chapter Prayer 2015 and invitations for prayer were sent to all parishes. I believe this enabled us to enter into Chapter with hearts free and fresh with enthusiasm, hearts that carry hope and peace.

Every four years, the Sisters of Providence hold decision-making meetings the Church calls “Chapter.” In April of this year, big decisions were made that direct the future of the Congregation and the use of their land. These decisions were made public in May to great interest and applause.
