During the past few months the appointment of four new leadership teams has taken place, each one following a time of reflection and discernment on the new ways of functioning that were suggested at the 2013 General Chapter. An appropriate form of leadership for each individual situation emerged and each group have committed themselves to live it out in a spirit of collaboration with others during the next three years.
