From July 1-14, 2012, the Provincial Directors and Sub-Directors of the Daughters of Charity gathered in Paris along with the Director General, Fr. Patrick J. Griffin, CM. They were called together by their Superior General, Fr. G. Gregory Gay, CM for an on-going formation session which takes place every ten years.Fr. Greg participated in the two weeks of the meeting. The theme of the Assembly was: “The Provincial Director: Animating, Accompanying, and Forming the Daughters of Charity.” Sr. Evelyne Franc, DC, the Superioress General of the Daughters of Charity, and her Council also attended and contributed to the meeting. Through numerous presentations, reflections and discussions, many of the important themes of the Congregation at the service of the Company were brought forth. Celebration of the Eucharist, common prayer, and fellowship were essential elements of the time together. All was made possible through the generous support of the Company as well as the hospitality provided by the confreres at Saint Lazare.
