XXVIIIth General Chapter 2017 The meaning of our LOGO

Our XXVIIIth General Chapter will officially open on Monday, August 14th 2017.  For a long time now, together, we have carried this event of our Congregation in our daily prayer.  The LOGO which was created for our Chapter will help us enter more deeply into the theme that we have chosen:

Gathered by Jesus Christ,
fashioned by his Word,
let us move forward in hope.

By this BLOG, we invite you to explore it and pray it with us.

Avançons dans l’Espérance!

Let us come together…!” (Blessed Marie Rivier)

These are powerful words from our Foundress.

The wind blows where it wills, you can hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes from nor where it goes…” (John 3, 8).   Together, we will scrutinize the horizon, we will discern the movements of the clouds that guide our journey, we will follow the wind of inspiration that stirs our hearts, and we will welcome the waves of the many challenges that beset our Congregation and our society. We will hold fast, rooted in faith in Jesus Christ, Face and Source of our hope!

Let us move forward in hope!

“Let us come together…!” (Blessed Marie Rivier)

These are powerful words from our Foundress.

Marie Rivier, her foot lifted, ready to take a step, summons us to move forward with hope toward the peripheries, to the unknown zones of our mission. Let us be audacious and creative! Our General Chapter 2017 is a celebration of that HOPE!

Fashioned by His Word

“The wind blows where it wills, you can hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes from nor where it goes…” (John 3, 8).   Our General Chapter 2017 is the celebration of our vocation: Jesus Christ! Let us open our arms to welcome the stirrings of the Spirit and to “do whatever He tells us”! Fashioned by His Word, we are called to be audacious as we witness to God’s presence in our world today.

Fashioned by His Word

The figures stand firmly on an open book, the Gospel. The Word of God has fashioned our mission in the heart of the Woman Apostle. She invites us: “Let us be an open Gospel where everyone may read Jesus Christ!” We acknowledge that the world of today needs Jesus Christ and His Word! A Sister of the Presentation of Mary makes visible the compassionate presence of God to others. This presence can only be real if we allow His Word to shape our mind and heart.

Gathered by JESUS CHRIST

“The wind blows where it wills, you can hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes from nor where it goes…” (John 3, 8).  The Holy Spirit is the wind that directs the waves. It is He, our unseen Companion, who sustains us and gives us the audacity to meet the waves of change that can become challenges to our mission. He never ceases to invite us to be who we are called to be in the Church and in the world of today.
