28th General Chapter of the Marist Sisters

13/06/2008: Italy

Sister Monica O’Brien, Superior General of the Marist Sisters, gave the welcoming address which opened the Sisters’ 28th General Chapter being help at Rome during the month of June 2008. The Chapter has coincided with an important event for the Sisters. June 30, 2008 will be the 150th anniversary of the death of Jeanne-Marie Chavoin, Foundress of the Marist Sisters.
Welcoming the Sister capitulants to the Chapter, Sister Monica said, “[Our Chapter] is truly an opportunity to recognise and celebrate our unity as we discern God’s call for the direction of our life and mission for the next seven years.”
Sister Monica closed her comments with the following words, “May Mary, Mother of the Church and Mother of our Congregation, accompany us and gently challenge us daily ‘to do whatever God tells us’. And when this ‘feast’ is over, may we recommit ourselves with new conviction and renewed energy to the Work of Mary – and go forth with new wine to be shared with all our Sisters and with all who thirst for the Reign of God today!”

Thirty two Sisters are participating at the Chapter, eight by right. The other delegates have come from: Asia-Pacific (8); Atlantic (8); and Europe-Africa (8).

The Marist Sisters are present in Germany, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Scotland, the United States, the Philippines, Fiji, France, Gambia, Ireland, England, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Senegal, Ukraine, and Venezuela.
