Jubilee Encounter 2022
Jubilees are cause for special celebration and provide opportunity for renewal and recommitment.
You Are Sent, General Directory 123 b
This year the Jubilee program, which is offered by the General Council to sisters who celebrate 25 years of religious profession between 2017 and 2022, is being held virtually July 6-9. Due to the uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Jubilee program that was scheduled for 2021 was postponed. This year, given the continuing uncertainties of the pandemic, the General Council decided to offer the renewal program virtually. The theme for this Jubilee Encounter is “Impelled into the heart of the world with a new fidelity.”
This Jubilee Encounter will be a time of renewal, a time for sisters to reflect on their vowed commitment – made out of love for God and God’s creation – and its impact on their lives and the world in which they minister. Sisters from six provinces representing 12 countries (Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Poland, Belarus, Hungary, Brazil, Peru, USA, Japan, Italy) will receive input, pray, and share faith. Languages being interpreted include Polish, Spanish, Portuguese, and Japanese. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology and simultaneous interpreters, sisters from these language groups will be able to interact with one another in large-group and small-group settings.
Each day has a focus:
- day one – Because God first loved us (YAS, C 10; 1 Jn 4:16.19)
- day two – Embracing with gratitude the gift of who we are: Our Charism and our reality
- day three – Sent into the heart of the world living mission prophetically (YAS, C 25 and C 9)
- day four – Transformed for mission with a new fidelity (YAS, C 4)
Let us keep these sisters in prayer. May these days be a source of renewal and recommitment for each of them.
Impelled into the heart of the world with a new fidelity
Megújuló hűséggel lépjünk a világ szívébe
Impelidas ao coração do mundo com uma nova fidelidade
Pociągnięte do serca świata, z nową wiernością
Impulsadas al corazón del mundo con una nueva fidelidad
