Provincial Chapter of Canada
15 - 21 july 2010
"Tell to this Generation: TO MARCH ON!"
Presentation of the Province Report by Sister Simone Bastien.
Sr. Simone reminded us that we had moved onward through the work of the Chapter Preparation that we did together, in our community, in our region and as a Province. It was the ‘miracle of participation by each one that made us progress.
Our mission is that of Jesus Christ, the mission to spread the Gospel in all its richness. She spoke to us about the mission in the Far North in collaboration with the US Province, as well as of the one under consideration together with the Mexican Province, concerning seasonal workers. She insisted on our internationality which reflects the identity of our Institute.
Discussion in the workshops centred on the following questions:
Did the Report reflect our life?
Perspectives: What permits us to advance, to go further?
Report of Provincial Bursar
After the presentation there was a time for questions, followed by discussion in workshops on this question:
How can we move forward in creating a new ‘fraternal economy’ in solidarity with the poor?
We listened to the various reports on formation at all levels: vocation promotion, pre-novitiate, novitiate, temporary profession, and on-going formation. These were given by each of the coordinators.
