‘GENERAL CHAPTERS A GUIDE FOR FACILITATORS, PLANNERS AND PARTICIPANTS’

Between the years 2007 and 2011 Srs. Mary Harrington SUSC and Gabrielle Stuart RSM with assistance from Sr. Dairne McHenry RSCJ offered Workshops on Facilitation of General Chapters in Kenya and Uganda to groups of women religious, approximately 60 religious in all.  By the end of 2011 there was a pool of women religious in both countries available to offer this service to congregations in Kenya, Uganda and elsewhere.  In addition there was a smaller group of religious ready to offer to others, the training workshops they themselves had received.

At that stage,  Srs. Mary and Gabrielle agreed that they would mentor the women giving the training workshops.  There had been many requests that material from these workshops would be available in book form and Sr. Dairne was freed by her congregation to undertake this task.

GLOIR, has at its heart a commitment to collaborative work. From the introduction to the Guide it can be seen that the generation and publication of this material was such a work. We believe it is a tool that will prove to be useful and helpful to Religious Congregations anywhere, especially in Africa.
