Leadership news from the Marist Sisters

women of the world logoLast month's edition of the Marist Sisters: Region of Asia-Pacific Newsletter gives an account of the General Chapter of the Marist Sisters which took place in Rome early this year.

The Chapter saw the election of Sister Grace Ellul, formerly Regional Leader of Asia-Pacific, as Superior General and Sister Vivienne Goldstein, former Regional Councillor in Asia-Pacific, elected to be one of three General Councillors. Since then, Sisters Grace & Vivienne have taken up residence in Rome.

A significant outcome of the General Chapter is that the Marist Sisters will no longer be shaped into Regions (with country groups organised under a Regional Leadership Team). Instead the Sisters within each country have the opportunity to design together a plan for life and mission best suited to their local circumstances. Thus, a Congregation of thirteen units will each have its own leader. Consequently the July 2015 Regional Newsletter will be the final Newsletter from the Region of Asia-Pacific.
