Our Internationality


Internationality brings us hope and allows us to keep on dreaming. We live in a time with more possibilities of sharing among ourselves. Our vunerability makes us need one another and opens us to interchange; no longer can any province stand alone.


Our internationality is for us a gift and
a responsibility.
We desire to put it at the service of life,
responding to the challenge coming
from the birth pangs of humanity
and the whole of creation
Chap 2008 (cf Romans ch8 vv)

How do we allow ourselves to be
touched by the needs beyond the
borders of our province,
especially in those places where
life is most threatened?
How are we called to respond?
General Chapter 2008

We recommend that we explore and persue,
at provincial, regional and international levels,
creative, generous and courageous ways
of putting our community of goods at the
service of justice peace and integrity of creation
General Chap08 Recommendation

How can we make the Society's
internationality good news for the poor?
How might we ensure that our decisions
to cooperate and integrate
within and across regions serve the wider
community? Can we see in our efforts to
become an international community
a parable of what it could mean
if the human community were to
make of our world an international society?
General Chapter 1994

My international experience in Assisi, before Final Vows, followed by time in Egypt, opened my eyes, raised so many questions, blew my mind...... In saying "Our Father..." I was confronted in an entirely new way with the fact that we are all sisters and brothers  -  and the consequences of this. Mon McGreal rscj

It’s taken me a life-time to comprehend the fact that people in my community don’t really know my background or ‘where I come from’, but also that I don’t really know their background either. And yet, without family ties, we have something deeply in common with a shared understanding, background and tradition. This is really powerful and appreciation of it has grown w...
