The United States - Canada Province is currently playing host to Superior General Kathleen Conan and General Council member Catherine Lloyd during an official visit. Sisters Conan and Lloyd will travel around the province over the course of about five weeks, making stops in St. Louis and St. Charles, Missouri; San Francisco and Atherton, California; Grand Coteau and New Orleans, Louisiana; Boston, New York, Albany and Halifax. Every superior general must make an official visit to every one of the Society's 41 provinces during her eight-year term. These visits offer an opportunity to assess the life and the vitality of each province. For Sister Conan, who is a member of this province and a former provincial of the United States Province, it is also an opportunity to renew friendships.
