Letter from the  General Council from November 14, 2019


 

Chapter Implementation Committee

The purpose of the Chapter Implementation Committee is to coordinate and plan the congregational
response to the implementation of the first two directional statements:

• Deepen and broaden our existing network of relationships while cultivating new, diverse and
inclusive partnerships
• Engage with courage and vigilance in personal and public advocacy for systemic change.

The implementation will be rooted in and flow from our desire for:

• Communal Discernment
• Continuation of moving from “I to WE”
• Active Participation
• Mutual Empowerment
• Accountability

The Implementation Committee will be composed of 8-10 sisters and 1or 2 Council liaisons. It is
envisioned that the Implementation Committee will work with sub-committees. Membership on the
committee will require a significant commitment of time and energy. Some of the qualities and skills
needed include collaboration, creativity, organization and communication skills.
