Provincial Chapter | June 12 - 19, 2022
St. John of God Community Services, NJ belongs to the Hospitaller Order of St. John of God, operating hospitals and services in 52 Countries. The governance of our Order is headquartered in Rome and then divided into Provinces around the world. We are part of the Province of The Good Shepherd in North America which comprises Hamilton, ON Canada, Toronto, ON Canada, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Westville Grove, NJ USA, Miami, FL USA, Momence, IL USA, and Albuquerque, NM USA.
Every four years, each Province gathers in Chapter to review our Services and plan for the following four years. One of the primary responsibilities of a Chapter is to elect leadership. Each Province is governed by a Brother elected as Provincial and four Brothers elected to assist the Provincial as Councilors. Please pray for the success of our Chapter and know that the Westville, NJ staff will do their best to convey the incredible work that is done each day at St. John of God Community Services.
There will be daily updates on this page. Stay tuned...
