Invitation to Journey with us at the Beatitudes Chapter of Mats

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ

When we as Franciscans gather together we are made more aware of our Franciscan vocation, charism and mission. We come together to BE together, to pray together, to learn together and to encourage one another in our Living of our Franciscan Rule in our everyday life.
I know that many of you, who would have liked to have been with us to help celebrate the 40th Anniversary of our NEW rule, have for various reasons been unable to join with us physically.
I would encourage EVERY Franciscan to join with us Spiritually. The Programme is posted on the OFSGB website and I would encourage you all to pray with us as we journey through the weekend. On the Programme you will see which Beatitude we are discussing and which Region is leading us in our discussion.
Please pray for each Region as they lead us in discussion about their Beatitude.
Please also pray for your National Council who have worked so hard to ensure all that can be done, has been done, to ensure a smooth running of this Chapter.
We will give you further updates as we go through the weekend programme.
Betsy Hart (National Minister OFSGB)
