The 9th Annual Meeting of Western Canada OCDS took place on July 6 – 7, 2018 at Little Flower Monastery, Carmel Hill, Deroche, B.C. Present were Rev. Fr. Jerald D’Souza, Regional Superior of Canada, Rev. Fr. Steny Mascarenhas, Provincial Delegate, Secretariat Officers, Community Presidents and Directors of Formation. Representatives of the Calgary and Vernon communities were recognized for their great effort and sacrifice made towards their attendance.

Fr. Jerald formally introduced Fr. Steny Mascarenhas as the new Provincial Delegate and chaired the meeting to wrap up the proceedings of the 2017 annual meeting. Reports were given by all in attendance, followed by queries and solutions on challenges and major concerns. Utmost importance was given to review of the local statutes, formation matters and community building.

It was determined that the Mission Statement for the year will be “Pay attention to formation”, a vital requirement for the spiritual growth of all OCDS members and building strong communities.
We are thankful to Fr. Alexander Braganza, Monastery Superior, for his hospitality in providing us with nourishment and looking after all our needs during our stay.

It was determined that the next meeting will take place at Carmel Hill on June 17, 18 and 19, 2019.
