During the morning session, the capitulants returned to their discussion concerning the postulata in relation to La Neyliere and the cause for the beatification of Jean Claude Colin.
The members of the Chapter strongly support the position that La Neyliere is “a place of great significance to the whole Society of Mary” and that in terms of its “mission or task, the provision of personnel and finances”, the provincial of Europe will work in close collaboration with the Superior General and other major superiors.
The Chapter also expressed support for mandating “the Superior General to explore the possibility of re-opening the cause for the beatification of Jean Claude Colin”.
The latter part of the morning was devoted to giving the capitulants time to consider how they were going to implement the decisions and recommendations of the Chapter following their return to their home provinces or districts. Sr. Christine Anderson, one of the facilitators, encouraged the capitulants “to access an open mind, an open heart and an open will”.
Capitulants also met in groups to share their personal experience of the Chapter before reporting back to a plenary session.
In the afternoon the capitulants considered a message to all members of the Society.
