Shaping the Future of Hospitality
A NEW Region within the Order
It is with joy that the General Definitory announces the approval for the official establishment of a new region within our Order’s structures. The new region comprising of the Provinces of Western Europe, Oceania and North America (that includes both the Provinces of Queen of the Angels and Good Shepherd) is one of the first fruits of our recent General Chapter. Western European Oceania North America will be known as WEONA.
The new region of WEONA hopes to:
To promote and nourish the sense of brotherhood and hope in this moment of our history that is marked with diminishment, loss and at times grief.
To provide creative opportunities for ongoing formation.
To share information on current ecclesial, political and social movements in the Region.
To develop a better common understanding of the implications and requirements of establishing the canonical and civil structures for continuing and safeguarding Hospitality that are mentioned throughout Section 6 of the 69th General Chapter’s Lines of Action.
Interestingly the meaning of the word WEONA is “Where goodness prevails” and it is the prayer of the Order that indeed this may be the experience of all those within this new region.
