Gather at the River

Gathering of the SM Province of the United States – Louisville, KY, June 30 to July 4, 2010

It was a joy and an honour to be with our Marianist Brothers to celebrate the first eight years of the unified US Province, the installation of the new Provincial Council, and to share the gifts and challenges of their strategic plan, Vision 2020. The welcome was warm, the prayer inspiring, and the laughter contagious. As Marianists, we speak often of the importance of ‘reading the signs of the times’. But, what we read often requires difficult discernments. In small group discussions and in “open mike” sessions, the sharing was honest and the listening sincere. The Spirit was alive, indeed!
