Provincial Chapter 2010-2012

Provincial Chapter - The Laity Speaks PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, December 29, 2010
The reflections and challenges today came from the laity.

The morning was given over to presentations by Suzanne Spino (President, Bayard Canada), Bret Thomas (President, Bayard USA) and Francesco Cesareo (President, Assumption College).  They all had the same goal:  to explain the relevance of their work for society and the Church and to make proposals to the Assumptionists in view of collaborating even more.  What struck the Chapter members, in addition to the extraordinary competence of all three, was the considerable knowledge each one had of the Assumption, its history and its charism, and their personal commitment to the mission.  Lively discussions followed each presentation.

Mass on the second dayToday, Wednesday, after Mass and Morning Prayer organized by the Filipino delegation, the entire day was dedicated to lay collaboration.

In the morning, after the final delegate arrived (Fr. Oswaldo from Mexico had been inadvertently stranded in Worcester for the night — another story in itself), we listened to presentations from major organizations sponsored by the Assumptionists in North America, Suzanne Spino, president of Bayard Canada, Bret Thomas, president of Bayard, Inc, USA, and Dr. Francesco Cesareo, president of Assumption College.

Despite the snow... PDF Print E-mail

The worst snow storm of the seasonThe worst snow storm of the season, which left up to 50 centimeters of snow in parts of the area around Boston, delayed by one day the gathering of sixteen delegates and six lay associates for the Chapter of the Province of North America.

But despite the snow, the participants at the Chapter were happy to see once again so many brothers and friends who had come together from every part of the Province: Mexico, Quebec, the Philippines, the United States. Fr. Richard will be representing the General Council during the Chapter.
