Province VIII At Work

Province VIII is actively engaged in a change-management process. When opportunities became available for a renewed leadership board for the province, our National President of The Order, Susan O’Brien, reached out to her leadership – the Diocesan Assembly Presidents in the region – for nominations. As Susan’s quiver was filled, the National Executive Board focused on their target to facilitate an enriched and reconfigured Province VIII leadership board, as a provisional board. Our collective goal has been to bring together an empowered group of leaders to collaboratively and purposefully shape an inspirational future for the Province VIII region.

As we work together to plan an Assembly scheduled for January 19-21, 2018, in Scottsdale, Arizona, and provide input to Triennial 2018, we are forming new bonds and strengthening existing ones. The Holy Spirit is rekindling and redefining our regional spirit, reminding us all of God’s gifts and that it is His work we are called to do, that all we think, do or say may be pleasing in His sight.

Planning for the January 2018 Assembly has allowed the new provisional leadership team to adopt collaborative and transparent decision-making practices that are supported through frequent, inclusive communications and discernment processes. As an energized and refocused Province body, we have the opportunity to collectively and collaboratively shape our future at the Assembly. Key among our activities are the election of a new Province board and discussion of our governance practices, with an eye toward aligning our bylaws with the national standards. During this special time of spiritual sharing, we look forward to connecting sisters, parishes, and diocesan groups throughout Province VIII to achieve unified, mutual and beneficial understandings and visionary outcomes. We are all called to this Order in different ways yet we seek a mutually workable set of principles and practices that support our efforts to do God’s will in the world, while enriching our lives at the same time.
