The New Provincial Councilors 2017
Rome, 23 October 2017
Prot. n. 316/2017
Dearest Sr. M. Anthony Basa, Provincial Superior
and Sisters of the Philippine / Taiwan / Hong Kong Province,
As we draw close to the Solemnity of Jesus the Divine Master, our patronal feast, I have the joy to announce that, in accordance to article 112 of the Rule of Life, 4 Provincial Councilors who will collaborate in the service of governance for the three-year period 2017-2020 have been appointed.
They are, in alphabetical order:
CERDENIA, SR. M. SONIA Provincial Councilor
CONSULTA, SR. M. LAWRENCE Provincial Councilor
EBORA, SR. M. NIMFA Provincial Councilor
MAGALLANES, SR. M. MAGDALENE Provincial Councilor
Among these, one will be chosen to act as the Vicar of the Provincial Superior. The appointment of the Provincial Secretary is the competence of the Provincial Superior, with the consent of her Council (RL 113). The Provincial Superior with the consent of her Council will present to the Superior General the proposal for the Provincial Bursar, who, in dialogue and attention to the needs of the Province, will receive the appointment for this service of administration (RL 114).
Thanking all for the responsible participation at this time of consultation and grateful in particular to the sisters who have accepted to assume the responsibility of governance in collaboration and dialogue, I invoke upon all the gift of wisdom and prophecy to be, wherever you are, a seed of hope and joy: a seed of the Gospel. Let us help each other to orient our life according to the Word of God given us today through the Apostle Paul. Let us follow the footsteps of Abraham, our father, who was strengthened in faith and gave glory to God, fully convinced that God has the power to fulfill what he has promised (cf. Rm 4, 20 - 21).
With this hope in my heart, I greet you
in Jesus Master and Lord
Sr. M. Micaela Monetti, Superior General
