Mission for the emerging future

The Society of the Sacred Heart asks our prayers for its General Chapter to be held in Nemi, near Rome, from 7th July - 10th August, with the theme "Life unfolding: mission for the emerging future". Delegates from forty countries will reflect and discern on the calls facing the Society at this time, and elect a new Superior General. As the current Superior General said in her Letter of Convocation:

A general chapter is a significant moment in the life of the Society as we discern the ways we are asked to respond to God’s calls at this moment in our history. A chapter is a journey in faith. In the preparation, during the meeting itself, and in the living of its orientations, it is a paschal process, a renewing event for the congregation. It is a time to celebrate what God has been doing among us, and a time to embrace the calls of the present and the future.

There will be regular news, updates and interviews with delegates on a dedicated section of their international website - https://rscjinternational.org/general-chapter-2016
