Our Direction – 2020-2026

May each of us ask for God’s grace to absorb and take up the direction the 2020 Chapter has laid out for us in these words:

Our mission statement proclaims in part: “Our mission…cutting across socio-economic, racial and national boundaries, assists [all] to live more fully and develop a personal relationship with God.” Thus, as women of peace since 1535, we renew our commitment to work for peace and justice for all.

The Chapter of Affairs Commitments:

Charism and Spirituality

Future Planning for Governance
To identify the necessary changes to our congregation‘s governance and to take action.
