XVIII General Chapter 2022

Today, September 29, the Congregation of the Sisters of the Poor of Saint Catherine of Siena begins the celebration of the XVIII General Chapter, at the Casa Generalizia, 3 – Rome.

This event is a time of grace, a powerful moment of evaluation prayer, study, reflection and planning for the future of the Congregation.

The theme chosen: “Forming to be icon of the Priestly Spirit” is the great challenge to which every SdP is called to live, radically, the vocation to holiness; forming to be a charismatic savinian  presence in the Church and in the world.

The chapter members come from: Italy, Brazil, Argentina, India and the Philippines.

The   Superior General, Mother Liliana Quesada, began this Encounter by receiving the testimonial letter of each participant, then continued with her message, declaring open the General Chapter.

Inspired by John’s Gospel passage on the wedding at Cana, a significant celebration was held entitled: “Do whatever he tells you!” (Gn 2,5)

At a later stage  the enthronement of the Word took place, which will be light and guide in the Chapter journey.
