(Fall 2016) -- Following our 2013 Chapter, the Spiritual Renewal Committee initiated a three-year process. As a committee we felt a desire to go back to the foundational documents that guide our lives:
- The Rule of St. Francis
- Our Community History
- Our Constitution, Design for Life
The three-year process is focused on three themes from our charism statement:
- Being women of prayer
- Living simple lives
- Compassionately responding to the needs of our times
Our Sisters have formed small groups for faith sharing on these themes, using one of the documents each year. This fall we begin year three. Through this experience of faith sharing our Sisters strive to deepen their commitment to Christ and to strengthen their relationship with one another and God’s people.
Pray for us that we may live our commitment to religious life with joy and with love for God, each other and all people.
