On Friday, 20 May2011, the Chapter Delegates gathered for the election of a new team. The process used is described as follows by the Communications Committee of the Chapter:
“We journeyed through this week in an intensive process of personal and communal discernment. We shared in small and large groups the fruit of our prayerful reflections. Another aspect fo this process was a day of silence and prayer. All this prepared us for the election process which was preceded by a Votive Mass of the Holy Spirit. The election itself was a grace-filled experience. We celebrated with a ritual of Thanksgiving later that evening.”
