When appropriate, accept governance responsibilities for some or all of the ministries in health care, education and religious and social services for which the Institution is responsible;

With the consent of the diocesan bishop, and if this is legitimate, agree to sponsor a ministry of the Institution. Our people Support for Religious Members of Canada (SRC) is managed by a director general and a board of directors, who are responsible for ensuring the proper functioning of the organization.
