Chapter Meeting — July 16, 2022

 The Chapter gathered on Saturday, July 16, 2022, at St Mark’s Catholic Church in Boise, Idaho. Each Chapter is it own school of formation, focus, and opportunity for fellowship among lay Dominicans. 

  Brian Walker talked about lay people living a consecrated life, within the means of the Evangelical Counsels. To live as such is to live a more perfect life in Christ. The Chapter will continue to support such apostolates within it and outside. 

  Pamila Jaszkowiak spoke of temperance as a virtue, both natural and spiritual being applied to aspects of our lives. The truth seems that moderation is always good and avoid evil in everything. 

  Alanna Burg reported on the Lay Provincial Council meeting held at Menlo Park near San Jose in California. She recalled the event with good memories and good relationships. 

  This is the Chapter’s 25th year. Hard to believe. The Lord has blessed the Chapter and the many within it. The Holy Spirit has been there many times bringing together lessons and ideas for our personal lives. He asks us to live according to that faith not just discuss it. 

  Above are two photos from central Washington, on the Columbia River, sunrise, in some alone time in prayer  as the Chapter heads into the past, I want to recall it as one where temperance guides our life as we never forget that Christ is in every action, decision, and matter of our lives.  

In peace and faith.
