25 Aug Visit of our Father General
Fr General’s visit
On August 8th, while the nation was buzzing with Olympic excitement, we had an additional excitement of our own. The Superior General of the Order was spending his holiday with our brothers at Kensington, to rest and to improve his English in advance of his visitation of the Province next year. He graciously accepted our invitation to visit and, accompanied by Fr Prior, spent over two hours with us. It was a very relaxed and encouraging visit. Fr General asked and answered questions, taking a warm interest in our own situation as well as informing us of general matters of the Order and speaking of the formation he felt was needed for responsible self-government on the part of the nuns. We look forward to meeting him again next year when, as part of his visitation of the Anglo-Irish Province, he will spend two days with the nuns of the British Association.
