Rejoice with us! Sr. Susan Baumann has been re-elected for a second five year term as our Superior General. Sr. Susan is originally from our US Province, so while we miss her presence among us in the US, we are grateful for her deep love of our Congregation, the Church, and the people of God - it is that deep love which enabled her to listen to the call of Providence and our Sisters. We began the day with Mass, praying especially for the presence and guidance of the Holy Spirit. Presiding at the Mass was the Vicar General of the Diocese of Metz, Fr. Dominique Thiry. He remained with us for the election as the official representative of the Bishop of Metz.
We thank you all for your prayers for Sr. Susan and all of us. Our chapter continues this week with the election of the council who will join with Susan in leading us. We will also finish working on our focus for the next five years.
