September 22, 2015

Sister Tiziana MerlettiUISG NEWS - Canon Law Council: In early March the first meeting of the newly established Canon Law Council took place. The five members of the group under the able leadership of Sr. Mary Wright ibvm come from different continents - Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and North America. They have planned two exciting events in the future:

(a) A meeting in December 2015 of a representative number of women religious canon lawyers who advise religious communities in different parts of the world. We are still trying to identify sister canonists from Latin America and Asia.

(b) In May 2016 before the UISG Assembly, a two day workshop for Superiors General which will take place here in Rome. 

This initiative is being sponsored by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and we are very grateful for their support. Sr. Mary Wright, IBVM (English); Sr. Marjory Gallagher, SC (English and French) were available for a two month period to offer canonical advice to congregational leaders through personal interviews, Skype and phone conversations, and by E-mails.

Sr. Tiziana Merletti, FSP (English, French and Italian), will be available for consultation during some days in September 2015, from 21 to 24 (please reserve a date with her). This service is ongoing and if you would like to make contact with one of them please contact the UISG office: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
