The Province Chapter is a privileged time in the history of a province. Through dialogue and prayer the chapter assesses the life of the province, renews its fidelity to the charism, and plans for the future. It calls each sister to openness, conversion and greater zeal so that the unique gift of Christ, the Shepherd, may overflow into the Church and the world. (Constitution 96)
As part of the chapter process, Pre-Chapter meetings provide space and time for deep listening to oneself and to each other on the realities of today and the priorities for the future. Pre-Chapter meetings provide the opportunity for lay partners-in-mission to contribute to the Province Chapter. This process acknowledges that sisters and partners-in-mission are together co-responsible for the effectiveness and sustainability of Good Shepherd Mission into the future.
