Ireland and Wales: pre-Chapter Assembly

Last week 41 sisters from communities in Ireland and Wales gathered at the Hodson Bay Hotel in Athlone for 5 days of preparatory meetings and discussions towards General Chapter 2016.  Themes for the week included:  themes and issues for Chapter; Safeguarding; Financial Advisory board planning; Leadership locally and congregationally; Ursuline Links; Cosmic Interconnectedness; future planning.

It was  5 days of meetings, prayer, celebrations and time to meet each other as we enjoyed the sunshine of County Roscommon!
