This coming Monday we will begin the discernment and election process of the Clyde prioress, the house superior. We spent Friday discerning goals and directions we need to be about for the next four years. Now we prayerfully enter into the time of discerning and electing the sister who can lead us on this next phase of our communal and personal journey to union with Christ.
The Tucson community will be entering in the same discernment and election process at the end of the month. Then Sr. Pat will appoint the superior of our Dayton community.
These are not decisions we make lightly. We truly open the ears of our hearts to listen to the voice of God. Without doing this we could have the blind leading the blind. The Rule of Benedict states, “ In the electing of a prioress let the office be conferred on the one who is chosen with the fear of God.” (RB 64) We trust in the Spirit’s guidance and step forward together.
We ask for your prayerful support for all of us, and we ask you to bless with grace whomever God has called forth to serve. We humbly thank you for your support.
