Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Congregational Assembly

June 22-26, 2022

Please register by April 22, 2022

We are excited to host our Congregational Assembly in a hybrid format this year. 


The Assembly begins with an opening session on Wednesday, June 22 at 1:00 p.m. The closing session will end on Sunday, June 26 by 12:00 p.m. noon.

To accommodate all four U.S. time zones, the daily sessions will be:

  • 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. (CDT)
  • 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. (CDT) for mid-day meal break
  • 1:00 – 4:00 or 4:30 p.m. (CDT) with a 25 min break in the afternoon



The Assembly Planning Committee (APC), Continuity and Coordination Committee (CCC), and Leadership agreed to a HYBRID format for this Assembly. This means you may choose one of four options for participation. It is expected that BVM Voting Participants will select either option 1 or 2 and be present either in person (1) or via Zoom (2) for all sessions.

You may choose to:

  1. be present in person at the Best Western Plus Hotel (fully interactive)
  2. participate from anywhere, other than the Best Western Plus Hotel in Dubuque, using Zoom for listening and break-out rooms (virtually interactive as an individual)
  3. participate by joining with others in-person at an off-site location. With this group, a Zoom connection is required, so that one person can give a summary of your discussion. Before signing up for this option, please make a plan with other sisters and associates in your area as to where you will hold the gatherings and who will be coordinating the local Zoom connection (virtually interactive group)
  4. view the live streaming only (no interaction)
