Easter Greetings!

 

This Bulletin was not initially imagined but it is felt that an update and reminder will help all of us to be centred as "friends in the Lord" and well prepared for the national assembly proceedings.
                          
                   56 national members are registered -  30 delegates are registered   
                    27 delegates = Quorum for national discerned decisions
         
How grateful General Council is for your commitment to the evaluation/review of Canada's Common Mission Statement. Your input will be collated and sent to Reps for further distribution to communities before the assembly.

 National Assembly Preparations
Canada's Constitution Consensus Process 

 

On the road to a new Constitution...

 

"Did not our hearts burn within us as He talked to us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us." Luke 24: 32

  

Hello my fellow CLC friends, Peace!

 

On behalf of the Constitution Working Group this bulletin has undertaken to give us all a summary of our Constitution journey over the past number of years. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with the process as we prepare for our upcoming Assembly. We are all reminded as well to please bring our own copy of the Constitution with us to the Assembly. You can bring a clean copy or a copy with the tracked changes over the revision process or both. These can be downloaded from our CLC Canada website.

 

Continued Lenten blessings as we await His Resurrection and the continuation of our Easter journey.

Peter Chouinard for the Constitution Working Group 

 


SAINT JOHN ASSEMBLY PRAYER
Loving creator God, we give You all thanks and praise for Your unending love. Help us in our Assembly preparations to welcome your call to the "Magis" and deepen our vocational call to be committed members of our CLC lay apostolic community.

We recall with gratitude our CLC roots and those who came before us; those who planted seeds in the good soil; those who listened well to Your voice; those who laboured freely on the fertile ground of our formation for mission.

Lord Jesus, we too want to be free to hear Your voice and so we pray with grateful hearts to the One who eternally listens with compassion to our petitions.
Holy Spirit, grant us the grace to respond generously to the Father's will as we prepare for our National Assembly.

Blessed Trinity be with us in each of our frontiers, help us and guide us to become one with You as we discern well our missions toward the greater good, the "Magis", and for your greater praise and glory.

We ask this in name of Christ Jesus Our Lord. AMEN.

Holy Mary, Mother of God - Pray for us, 
Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas, pray for us, 
St. Ignatius - Pray for us,
Fr. John English, sj - Pray for us, 
Fr. Jim Profit, sj - Pray for us,

Amen                                                        May 29-June 1, 2014
