Every four years we Augustinians here in Ireland together with some overseas representatives celebrate a gathering. We call it a Chapter. This year it takes place in the Dromantine Retreat and Conference Centre, Newry, Co. Down. It begins Sunday evening the 25th of June and ends on Friday 30th June. At the meeting the Prior General from Rome will commission the new leadership team for the next four years. The new Irish Provincial Fr. John Hennebry has again been elected by the democratic vote of the membership of the Irish Province.
PLEASE PRAY FOR US
We invite you to join with us in prayer for the success of our Chapter gathering. We need the guidance of the Holy Spirit for some important and crucial decisions which will profoundly effect the life of our Province and its various ministries. Reviewing the last four years and planning for the future, we need your spiritual support. Join with us in reciting the Chapter Prayer.
Lord Jesus, you promised to be present where two or three gather in your name.
May your presence and guidance be with the Irish Augustinians
who have come together in this Chapter meeting.
Lord, give strength courage and vision to the our Provincial, Fr. John Hennebry.
Lord God, guide all the members of the Chapter through difficult decisions,
through the review of the past four years,
through God’s plan for the future.
Give them a new heart for their ministry to us,to build community with us
according to the spirit and spirituality of Christ and St. Augustine.
