Province Visitation Regional Council Consultative Meeting

On Saturday, February 21, at St. Dunstan's Church in Fredericton, NB, the Regional Council held a consultative meeting. Attendance by members from Saint John, Woodstock, New Maryland and three of the Fredericton parishes made for lively discussions. Our meeting opened with an appropriate prayer service sharing selected quotes from Pope Francis. The objective of this consultative meeting was to launch a reflection among our members, at the local and diocesan levels, on the current and future contexts and issues surrounding Development and Peace, as part of the discussions leading to the Orientation Assembly. Breaking into groups to discuss the questions with which we were presented gave us ample areas to cover and resulted in a report that will prepare our reps to be well informed for the Orientation Assembly. Two members were then selected to attend that event to be held in Otterburne, Manitoba, June 12 - 14, 2015.
