In her final address at the organisation’s Annual General Meeting in Barbados, Nuala Menezes referred to a presentation made by Sr Angela Ann Zukowski MHSH, guest presenter at the 2016 AGM. She said “We must, as Sr Angela Ann advised, stop operating in silos. As communicators, we must become collaborators. Stop working only with our ‘friends’ and work with our people. Give up looking for the flaws and seek out the talents. If we can manage to do this our dioceses will become ‘wow’ places.”
Menezes, who represented the diocese of St George’s-in-Grenada and served as president for two consecutive four-year terms, delivered her final president’s report at SC’s tenth AGM, September 5–7. Elections for a new president were held on the final day. Delegates came from Barbados, Belize, Grenada, Jamaica, St Vincent & the Grenadines, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago and Antigua. Representatives from SIGNIS-Latin America were invited and attended.
