Chapter Opening



“We carry the light in our hearts during these days of our 14th General Chapter and beyond. This light will reveal to us Your will for us as individuals and as a Congregation committed to share the Good News among peoples.”

Sr. Maria Theresia, as Chapter President, lights the Chapter Candle from the Paschal Candle.  Each of the 9 Home Community representatives takes a candle and lights it from the Chapter Candle.  Sr. Maria Theresia and the representatives carrying their lit candles, lead the capitulars and all others present to the Chapter Hall.  

The Chapter Candle is put in place and the representatives take their candles to their respective tables. The capitulars go to their respective Home Community tables.
