Special Edition Newsletter

Dear Sisters and Partners in Mission,
On this Feast of the Annunciation, we are delighted to share this special edition newsletter (file attached) containing interviews carried out with the new Congregational Leadership Team.
In today’s Gospel, we listen to Mary’s courageous reply to the angel Gabriel: “Let it be done to me according to thy word” (Lk 1:38). And in these interviews, we hear the echo of Mary’s audacious ‘YES’ through the deeply personal words shared by the ten women who have been called to lead the Congregation for the next six years. The interviews reveal how these women have followed in the footsteps of Mary to ‘not be afraid’ and to allow ‘Jesus to form in them’.
We give thanks for the blessing of this new team, for their individual life journeys, and for the unique gifts that each one brings to the mission and to the work of leading the Congregation. But their message for the ongoing transformation that lies ahead is consistent and clear throughout. They stretch out their hands to all sisters and partners in mission – daughters and sons of Saint John Eudes and Saint Mary Euphrasia – and speak the words: ”Do not be afraid” (Lk 1:38) and “let Christ be formed in you” (Gal. 4:19) for the future mission to be carried out together, as one family.
The Communications Office would like to thank the members of the new team for their time and commitment to make this special edition become a reality. It offers a unique opportunity for the wider Congregation to learn about how each of these women – individually and collectively – are Drawn by Love, Passionate for Justice.
May Jesus come alive in all our hearts today!
The Communications Office
