Rome, 23 October 2017 

Prot. n. 316/2017


Dearest Sr. M. Anthony Basa,  Provincial Superior

and Sisters of the Philippine / Taiwan / Hong Kong Province,

As we draw close to the Solemnity of  Jesus the Divine Master,  our  patronal  feast,  I have the joy to announce that,  in accordance to article 112 of the Rule of Life,  4  Provincial Councilors who will collaborate in the service of governance for the three-year period  2017-2020  have been appointed. 

They are, in alphabetical order:

CERDENIA, SR. M. SONIA                                                            Provincial Councilor

CONSULTA, SR. M. LAWRENCE                                                  Provincial Councilor

EBORA, SR. M. NIMFA                                                                 Provincial Councilor

MAGALLANES, SR. M. MAGDALENE                                       Provincial Councilor

Among these, one will be chosen to act as the Vicar of the Provincial Superior. The appointment of the Provincial Secretary is the competence of the Provincial Superior, with the consent of her Council (RL 113).   The Provincial Superior with the consent of her Council will present to the Superior General the proposal for the Provincial Bursar, who, in dialogue and attention to the needs of the Province, will receive the appointment for this service of administration (RL 114).

Thanking all for the responsible participation at this time of consultation and grateful in particular to the sisters who have accepted to assume the responsibility of governance in collaboration and dialogue, I invoke upon all the gift of wisdom and prophecy to be, wherever you are, a seed of hope and joy:  a seed of the Gospel.  Let us help each other to orient our life according to the Word of God given us today through the Apostle Paul.   Let us follow the footsteps of Abraham, our father, who was strengthened in faith and gave glory to God, fully convinced that God has the power to fulfill what he has promised (cf. Rm 4, 20 - 21).

                                                                                                                                            in Jesus Master and Lord
