Associates of Wisdom: New Leadership Team Elected
In October 2018, the Associates of Wisdom met for a weekend retreat to elect new leadership. Sr. Marie Chiodo, DW led the process of the day. It began with prayer and two presentations on discernment in decision making as those gathered listened to Wisdom in calling forth their new leadership.
At the blessing service following the election, gratitude was expressed for four years of leadership by Ellie Filippone, Pat Wolosz, Valerie Day and Sr. Pat Schmidt. Those gathered then prayed over Sue O'Brien, Maria Roja and Audrey Schroeder who began their term in January. Provincial Sr. Catherine Sheehan shared her experience at the General Chapter of the Daughters of Wisdom (August 2018), noting some implications for the future for both the Sisters and Associates. The gathering was concluded with a festive meal shared by Associates and the Sisters who have walked with them over the years.
