The day was spent looking at our priorities and broad directions together with the partners in mission.  Personal time was given for reflection on the question, “Where do I sense the Spirit firing us to take risk for our mission?”  Sr. Linda Lizada RC, facilitator, singled out the two words “energize” and “risk” which is in our chapter theme.  The process is to further sharpen the directions considering the conversations during these chapter days. 

Responses were posted for gallery viewing and the sisters were given the chance to express their agreement to three responses by placing colored stickers on the response.  Later, the priorities were again discussed in small groups.

In the afternoon, Sr. Brigid Lawlor announced the names of the sisters from whom the new province leader would be elected.  Sr. Linda, RC led the sisters to a process of discernment as the delegates went into individual prayer and reflection until the Eucharistic celebration in the evening. 

The delegates spent an hour of adoration after supper invoking the guidance of the Holy Spirit on the choice of the leader who will lead the province for the next six years as preparation for the election the next day.
