Event Details

INFORMATION FOR SISTERS:

Registration is open for Province Chapter III: Elections, December 6-9, 2018.


This Chapter will begin with lunch at noon followed by the meeting at 1 p.m. on Thursday, December 6. Since the length of the voting sessions will determine the Chapter ending time, those traveling by air should plan for a late afternoon return flight on Sunday, December 9. There is a planned Liturgy in Holy Family Chapel on Saturday, December 8, at 4:30 p.m.

In light of the importance of this Chapter of Election, Province Leadership has decided that sisters who commit to attending each day of the Chapter on Elections may register as voting participants (Voting Mode Option C), irrespective of their attendance in April and July.

Those needing sleeping room accommodations at the Motherhouse should contact Denise Raggio directly at (314) 678-0478.

You can register by completing the online registration form by clicking on this link: Chapter of Elections registration . Registration closes on Monday, November 5.

From the July Chapter evaluations, it was evident to the Chapter Planning Committee that sisters want to know those in discernment better in order to be able to make the best choices for the next Leadership Team and Council. Toward that effort, the following is being planned:

  • By early November, pre-Chapter profiles of each discerner nominee consisting of short biographical sketches, written responses to a few questions, and a short video interview will be shared electronically.
  • During Chapter, there will be two sessions in which nominees for Team or Councilor will respond to a series of questions. Again, the communal discernment process using the Home and Consensus Tables will be used.
  • There will be the opportunity to submit questions for the nominees following table conversations during Chapter. The questions submitted from the tables will be synthesized, with significant time for prayer and reflection built into the schedule.

There will be more information coming from us prior to gathering in December. In the meantime, please complete your registration by Monday, November 5. Thank you for your continued participation in the Chapter process.
