This year’s formation focused on the following points: religious life, community life and its different expressions, vows, wills, rights and obligations of individuals, dismissals and voluntary departures, Associates, and lawsuits.
Everyone profited from the quality presentations which were given separately in French and in English. Two of the presenters are well known to the SNJM community. Sr. Marjory Gallagher, SC, was one of the animators of the 33rd SNJM General Chapter in 2011 and Fr. Frank Morrisey, OMI, has often offered sessions and acted as a consultant for the SNJM community.
Everyone also enjoyed the delicious banquet on Thursday evening, at which those finishing the three-year program were presented with certificates.
Following the last session on Friday morning, the week concluded with a bilingual missioning ceremony at which each participant was missioned to continue to bring light, life, and hope to our world.
