Elected by Delegates as the Congregational Leadership Team, at a Virtual General Chapter on December 8, 2021, Sisters Evalyne Aseyo (Kenya), Lorraine Connell (USA), Amarachi Grace Ezeonu (Nigeria), Miriam Montero Bereche (Peru) and Mary Johnson (USA), spent three months in transition with the outgoing Leadership Team.  Sr. Mary Johnson, new Congregational Leader, worked in close collaboration with Sr. Teresita Weind, Congregational Leader (2008-2021), to coordinate the leadership transition meetings during these months. On March 25, 2022, the New Team completed the transition of all responsibilities for the Religious Congregation. Sisters from five continents joined through Zoom in a Prayer Ritual of Handing Over Canonical Authority.


The SNDdeN Congregational Leadership Team (Sisters Miriam Montero Bereche, Amarachi Grace Ezeonu, Mary Johnson, Evalyne Aseyo and Lorraine Connell) had dinner on May 29, 2022 at the Coesfeld Generalate in Rome. They shared a photo opportunity with four members of the SND Coesfeld Leadership Team (back row).
