The initial part of our gathering included reports from each of the Provincial / Regional Superiors giving everyone a sense of the happenings across the Congregation and a deeper understanding of the variety of ways that our mission is being lived out. Much time was also spent reflecting on, praying over and discussing topics related to preparations for the XXV General Chapter which will take place in the summer of 2019. Other topics included reports from our mission homes, a report by M. Jana on the World Meeting of Families that was recently held in Dublin, Ireland, Congregational statistics, and financial issues.

All those gathered were grateful for the prayers offered by Sisters in all parts of the world which supported us in our work and certainly helped to make it a fruitful gathering.
