Mission Formation options open for partners in mission

The North America Mission and Values Team — known best for planning North America Gatherings and Angers Pilgrimages — is offering mission formation in new and creative ways during the pandemic, when we cannot be together in person. The team is broadening the invitation to everyone.

Beginning in October, the team will host at least one virtual meeting per month on Zoom. Some of the meetings will be more content-based and lasting for two hours. Some will be more conversational and reflective and will last for one hour.

Meetings are open to all Partners in Mission. The sessions will be interactive and include small group discussions in breakout rooms. The purpose of the sessions is to provide participants with an opportunity to learn about issues of concern to Good Shepherd while connecting with one another across North America.

Mission Formation events for 2020

The three monthly events for the rest of 2020 are:

  1. October 13: Migration Talk with Sr. Winifred Doherty (See page 20 for details).
  2. November 17: Talk by Sr. Anne Josephine Carr (Great Britain, the Angers Pilgrimage presenter) about St. Mary Euphrasia and Hope 
  3. December 4: Conversation and Reflection on 2020 – What Do We Carry Forward or Let Go Of?

Registration for the sessions opens about a month in advance. The November and December meetings are not yet available for registration. Registration is open for the October event with Sr. Winifred Doherty at https://bit.ly/3ikdUZO. Registration is required and will close October 8.

An invitation to register for all mission formation events will be sent through the Good Shepherd listserv (the same list for the SME daily quotes). To be added to the listserv, send your email address to Lizzie Cody [email protected].
