We give thanks to God for His gracious blessings on our community during the recent Third Ordinary General Chapter this past July. It was a time of great unity and prayer for the Chapter Mothers who gathered from around the world to review the past six years and to deepen the understanding of the life of our Institute in its patrimony, charism, religious life, and apostolates. A special element of the Chapter was the presence of Rev. Carlos Miguel Buela, our founder, who made himself available to preach during the opening silent retreat, to give some presentations, and above all to speak with the sisters and answer their questions.
As a result of the Chapter, the General Council has set forth many new initiatives as well as the reinforcement of existing projects in the Institute. Mother Maria Anima Christi Van Eijk was also re-elected as our General Superior, and Mother Mary of the Sacred Heart Gaes was appointed as the new Provincial Superior here in the Province of the Immaculate Conception.
We pray for the sisters who have received new assignments during this time and for all of the members of our community that we may be docile to the Holy Spirit in all His inspirations for the glory of God and the salvation of many souls.
