Almost two years ago we were ready to celebrate our 15th General Chapter. Once again, we are ready! We have updated the list of capitulars after the election of new leadership teams, actualized our reports and made needed adjustments to the regulations regarding traveling to and staying in Italy.

We are grateful to know that almost 100% of our capitulars are vaccinated and that the Italian Government has implemented regulations that help to deal with the Pandemic in a positive way. Knowing that several other international Congregations have had or will have their General Chapter in this time, is also encouraging for us. Therefore, we are hopeful that we can have the General Chapter as planned in Aricia/ Rome from 12 – 31 of January 2022. 

I invite all of you, members of our Arnoldus’ Family, our lay partners and friends to pray for this important event for our Congregation. As part of the Universal Church, journey together in a synodal way, we trust that we’ll find an answer to the question what gift the Spirit wants to offer the World through us in this specific time of history.  

In communion and grateful for your prayer and support, 

Sr. Maria Theresia Hörnemann, SSpS – Congregational Leader
