Governance

The Governance Committee continues to work with and for all of us. Below is a reminder of what was asked of the newly elected team at our 2013 Chapter.

“We, the Chapter Delegates of Visitation Province, invite the Leadership Team to engage us in a communal process of exploration and dialogue in order to develop organic expressions of leadership suitable to our needs at this time. We wish this process to begin as soon as possible and to be implemented as new expressions emerge.”

Over the past year the committee has invited us to dialogue with each other and will continue to do so this year and next. We will be reminded to look at our needs for the future in light of our demographics and risk making suggestions regarding the choosing of our Governance Model.

We are encouraged to get involved and respond to the information coming from the committee.

At the ATRI Conference in September the guest speaker was Sr. Lynn Levo, CSJ. The following is a quote from the introduction to her session:

“We live and minister in a time of chaos, endings and the unknown. We have an opportunity to dream, to wake up and create new ways of being – to create a preferred future. The choice is ours.” 

“How Then Shall We Live?”

Bernadette Fegan, Anna Rowley and I are continuing to visit the various groups in Visitation East to share information about the July Visitation Assembly. Sr. Nancy Sylvester, IHM, was the guest speaker on the topic of “Contemplative Prayer and Dialogue” and the Visitation Province Directional Statement.

On October 2, Anna visited the Pictou/New Glasgow Associates. Marjorie met with the Truro Associates on October 15. Bernadette and Marjorie visited PEI on October 23 and 24. Presentations were given in Summerside on Friday afternoon and in Charlottetown Saturday morning.

The associates and sisters who have attended the presentations to date have expressed gratitude for the information. We encouraged them to practice Contemplative Prayer.  Submitted by Marjorie Allison-Ross

They included stories of area happenings, plans for sharing and deepening the Assembly directions and in-service in the areas of associate communication and intranet, PRAM and Spirituality.

The April visit of the Congregation Leadership team and the Congregation of Notre Dame Corporate stance deepened the associates' understanding of the history and internationality of the congregation.
