Continuing our General Chapter Reflections

Continuing our General Chapter Reflections, each province and region (administrative entities of the Congregation of Notre Dame) prepared a “creative presentation” to show where each felt God was calling the Congregation into the future. These presentations were to be approximately 10 minutes in length and were to come from the province or region’s reflections on the 17 letters from the sisters and associates that we received and shared on in the year leading up to the Chapter. Our associates also did a similar presentation although their challenge was much greater than ours as they had to prepare theirs working across all languages and great distance! All seven of these presentations happened over the course of a morning and were live-streamed for those at home to watch. If you did not see them, it is not too late – archived versions are available at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/cnd-en and http://www.ustream.tv/channel/cnd-fr and http://www.ustream.tv/channel/cnd-es.

Sisters Of Mercy

I am pleased to share with you that Blessed Sacrament (USA) Province supports the Sisters of Mercy effort to bring a speaker from the COPINH coalition in Honduras to the School of the Americas’ Convergence on the US/ Mexico border being held in October (7-10) of this year. I remind you that Berta Caceres, the Honduran indigenous and environmental rights campaigner, was murdered in early March, barely a week after she was threatened for opposing a hydroelectric project. The co-founder of the Council of Indigenous Peoples of Honduras (Copinh) was shot dead by gunmen who entered her home in La Esperanza. Some of the Congregation of Notre Dame Sisters in Honduras worked with Berta and were very affected by her murder. This is a concrete expression of solidarity with our CNDs and with the people of Honduras.
