This summer we will undertake our community’s first general chapter. Throughout the year we are attending a series of workshops to help prepare our hearts and minds for this beautiful event. Recently Sr. Elizabeth McDonough, O.P. spoke to our community about the history and purpose of general chapters. Our Sisters also attended Fr. Timothy Gallagher, OMV’s workshop on the Discernment of Spirits. We are praying daily for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on our community as we prepare and especially during the days of chapter. We are grateful for your prayers as well!

While in Rome, our Sisters also collected oral histories of our founder, John Cardinal O’Connor, from members of the Roman Curia who worked collaboratively with him during his lifetime.

Finally, the Sisters were interviewed by Rome Reports for a story about our community, which you can watch below:
