Sister Helena - Friday, May 16, 2014

The last day of the Pre-Chapter meeting opened with Memorial Mass in honor of Saint Simon Stock who tradition holds received the brown scapular from Our Lady.  Father Mario recalled the history of Saint Simon Stock and revisited the relationship that has been forged between Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa and the Carmelite Friars of the Saint Elias Province.  The reminiscing touched the hearts of those present and thanked Father Mario for including it in his homily.  The Delegates proceeded to their last day of formal Pre-Chapter meeting.  The session opened with a prayer service on the Healing Ministry of Christ led by two Delegates.  Mother Mark expressed gratitude for all the hard work by everyone.  Special mention was made to the Commission Chair-Persons, Commission members and secretaries, Father Mario, Chapter Secretary and her Assistants, the Moderator, and last but not least, the Chapter Parliamentarians.  The meeting adjourned and will reconvene for the 13th General Chapter in September 2014.  The Delegates met with their respective Commissions for a short morning session and then proceeded for a formal lunch in the refectory.
