Welcoming a New Superior General

The Australia New Zealand Province welcomes the election of Barbara Dawson RSCJ as Superior General of the Society of the Sacred Heart. We ask you to pray for her as she begins her eight year term.

Lighting the Founder’s Candle

The photo below shows Barbara lighting the candle that was by the bedside of St Madeleine Sophie Barat at the time of her death.  It is a tradition for each new Superior General to light Sophie’s candle. Outgoing Superior General Kathleen Conan RSCJ looks on.
