Impelled by God’s Inclusive Love– What is a General Chapter?
For those who are not part of a religious congregation, an aura of mystery often surfaces when they hear that the sisters who minister among them are meeting for “chapter.” Sisters have done this for centuries but, as the needs of our world evolve, so does the process of General Chapters. During 2017-2018, Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston and associates will gather for Chapter Weekends in September, October, February, and March. Each time we prepare for a General Chapter, we select a theme. Through prayer, discussion, and listening, the theme that has emerged for our 2017-2018 Chapter is “Impelled by God’s inclusive Love”.
Sisters, associates, partners in mission, and students, reflect on the mission and values of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston in their Sponsored and Congregation Ministries. Click here to view.
