Fourth Pre-Chapter Online Session, June 21, 2023

The fourth Pre-Chapter online session for the General Chapter was a bit special. After Fr. Chris Chaplin’s introduction, Fr. Humberto Henriques spoke of this General Chapter as a prayer. How is the Holy Spirit moving? What does she invite us to as disciples on the road to Emaus? Then he shared an inspiring video. The general idea picked up the theme of the General Chapter that God walks with us. During the last years, when ‘our hearts burned’, God was with us. God was, is and will be with us. The Spirit moves us.

As in the previous session, the work was centered on the document called, ‘Jesus came up and walked with them: Compilation of Congregational Feedback‘. On this day we worked with the last four points.

  • Ageing
  • Clericalism & MSC Identity
  • Mission
  • JPIC

After the group work of the delegates, Fr. Chris Chaplin spoke about hopes, dreams, challenges… for the future. He thanked all the people who worked for this online pre-chapter session and reminded them that the next session will be held on July 11 and 12.
