"Tell to this Generation: TO MARCH ON!"
1. Presentation of the theme "Franciscan Spirituality" was followed by a time for personal reflection and work in workshops.
2. Sisters Patricia St. Cyr, Mariette Aubin and Doriça Sever, who had been chosen to form the redaction committee, worked on the formulation of the Province Project.
3. Informal assembly to give the Chapter members the possibility of expressing their “dreams” for their communities, their missions, etc. The Sisters mentioned several dreams: a mission with Amerindians; formation for a social justice commitment; to have more Sisters to add to the small fraternities; use of the chalet for days of recollection with young people; that all the formation received really be put into practice, etc.
4. A sharing on the life of the Toronto community: The Sisters in the community of Toronto have lived without a Superior for almost a whole year. They shared their difficulties and the positive aspects of their experience.
