Annals for the Chevalier Year #1
Welcome to the Chevalier Year, which will officially open on 15 March 2023, the 199th anniversary of Fr. Jules Chevalier’s birth and will end on the feast of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart in May 2024. The grand celebration will be on 15 March 2024, the 200th birthday of Fr. Chevalier.
WE PRESENT TO YOU THE THEME ANO LOGO FOR THE CHEVALIER YEAR
We invite you to sit and pray with this logo & theme. What does it say to you?
We thank the MSC provinces in Brazil who first proposed the theme and Sr. Helena (Nam, Yuri), MSC Sister from Korea who designed the logo. We also thank Joao Pedro from Brazil who also submitted logo designs.
We encourage provinces, unions, regions and communities to have a special celebration in your places to mark the official opening of the Chevalier Year!
As we celebrate this special jubilee for our Chevalier family, may each one of us be touched by the Spirit, and, like Fr. Chevalier, will be gifted with a heart on tire for mission.
These Annals are brought to you by the Chevalier Year Commission. Special thanks to Fr Michael Angelo Dacalos, MSC, for the layout and design.
