What are the functions of the chapter sisters?
The functions of the Chapter Sisters are defined in our Constitutions and the Directory
- “The General Chapter is a collegial assembly which - within the limits fixed by the Church and according to the Constitutions- exerts the normative authority in the Congregation.
- It carries out the union of responsibilities within the Congregation and searches its constant renewal and adjustments being attentive to the needs of the Church and of the world, in fidelity to the Gospel and to the charism of the Congregation.
- … It pertains to it, the election of the General Government…” (C. 105)
- “… It is its duty to study the situation of the Institute in its different aspects in order to take make the necessary decisions for the revitalization of its spirit and its apostolic activities” (D. 54)
The Sisters attending the Chapter count on the experience, the reflections, the prayer and the support of the all Spínola Sisters.
