Our General Chapter Begins

Faithful Companions of Jesus (FCJ Sisters) from many parts of the world arrived at the FCJ Retreat and Conference Centre, Calgary, Canada, for the Society’s 2019 General Chapter. The Chapter will be held from the evening of October 5th to 31st.  The Sisters who are Chapter delegates will be in a silent retreat from the 6th to 12th October during which time there will be input each morning and faith sharing in small groups each evening.  This helps to ensure that the entire proceedings of the Chapter take place in the context of faith and discernment.  On the final day of the retreat the delegates participate in the Mass of the Holy Spirit when the Holy Spirit will be asked to guide the entire Chapter.

As the sisters arrived, there was great delight in meeting each other.

Throughout the six-day retreat there will not be any communication from the Chapter Group.  We will start communicating again shortly afterwards.  Meanwhile we would appreciate it if you would join us in praying for God’s blessing on the Chapter.
