General Council Visits 2017

One aspect of the mission of the General Superior and the General Council is to visit the various areas of the congregation. These visits include canonical visitations (an official visit to the Province, Vice-Province or Region) ; preparation for perpetual vows ; sessions with provincial councils or groups of sisters for various reasons ; or visits to assist/support the local leadership with a particular issue. Check periodically as more visits are added and join us in praying for the safety of our sisters traveling and the success of these visits.
