The Northeast Regional Convocation was held on August 10-12 at the Loyola House of Retreats in Morristown, New Jersey. The subject of the program was Franciscan joy.
The Tau Fellowship renewed our commitment to plan for the next Northeast region Convocation in 2014.
Progress to date;
1. The same venue has been reserved (Loyola House of Retreats in Morristown NJ) for the weekend of Friday August 8 to Sunday August 10, 2014. This seemed to be the consensus of the people attending
(both venue and weekend). A deposit has been sent. Please mark your calendars, if you have them that far ahead.
2. Ed Schneider who has been the treasurer for the past several NERCs has graciously agreed to be the treasurer again.
3. I have asked Diana Finch (and her Little Sparrow fellowship in Toronto) to help us in the planning and execution of the NERC
by taking charge of morning and evening prayer for the event using the Canadian book of common prayer. It was felt by several
people that we need to expand our view as we are an international order, and Diana has been a regular attendee of the NERCs. She has agreed.
There is still plenty of stuff for all of us to do.
You are encouraged you to ponder this challenge in your heart, to join in the planning and in the actual event. If it is possible to let Rick Pearce of your planned availability please do so. We will start in earnest our planning in about a year.
