The Congregational Fund Committee met at the Generalate, Rome from August 14-18, 2017 for the distribution of grants. The committee members for three years are Sisters Marina, the treasurer general, Mary Sreeja, the congregational mission coordinator, Mary Valerie Sweeney, Maria Lory Inês Rockenbach, Marie So-Wha Kwak and Maria Manuela Conrad. Sister Maria Manuela Conrad could not be present for the meeting.
Sister Mary Kristin welcomed the members and enlightened the new members on the history of the congregational fund. The committee spent time to educate themselves on the fund document and understand the process used in distributing the annual allocation. They proposed modifications to the fund document and reported to the general government the funding decisions. Sister Valerie Sweeney accepted the responsibility to be the chairperson of the committee. It is wonderful to see how the congregational resources are supporting to further the mission of the congregation and advancing the Reign of God across continents.
