7th Provincial Chapter

The seventh Provincial Chapter of the Sacred Heart Province of the Ursulines of Mary Immaculate was held at the Ursuline Convent, Kumbalgodu, Bangalore, India, from 09 to 15 January 2021. The theme “AWAKENED TO BE SOWERS OF PROPHETIC HOPE” opened a new page in the history of both the Institute and the Province.
The delegates prepared themselves for this great event with intense preparation, prayer and sacrifices. The Chapter began with the recollection after which the delegates entered the chapel for the inaugural Eucharist with lighted lamps determined to commit themselves to a life of renewal and transformation in order to be authentic UMIs.
Sr. Nikesh Mecherithakadiel, the Provincial Superior, formally welcomed Rev. Fr. Joseph Lobo SJ, the facilitator and 30 delegates. In her welcome address the Provincial said that the Provincial Chapter is a grace-filled moment in the annals of the Province in shaping the destiny of our communities and our Province for the next 6 years.
As the Provincial Chapter 2021 was declared open Sr. Nikesh unveiled the logo of the Chapter.
The Chapter was an invitation to rethink and recreate oneself, the communities and Province as sowers of prophetic hope. It was a moment to harmonize the hearts, minds and souls as delegates to review the past and challenge oneself for a better future as a Province and Institute.
