2 introduction Dear s and Colleagues in Mission, It is my great pleasure to welcome all of you for the 10th International Network of Schools Conference, here, in Colégio de Nossa Senhora do Rosário, Porto. Give Yourself to Challenge, the theme of our Meeting, transmits quite well the Spirit that moves all of us in our schools and inside the Network. Our Great Challenge is the permanent motivation to go further and to dedicate the best of us to keep the Flame alive the Spirit of Faith and Zeal of Jean Gailhac and Mère St. Jean in order that All May Have Life, mainly those with whom we share our lives, especially the children and youngsters around the world that we have the responsibility to educate. The Jubilee of the 200 years Birthday of the Foundress, the 160 years of the Foundation of RSHM Institute and the 10th Anniversary of our Network are joyful occasions for all of us and renewed appeals to strengthen bonds that connect us: sharing our Mission and Vision and stimulating creativity and enthusiasm in each other to keep on giving answers to the challenges of the global community in which we live together. It is also very exciting to host a group of our students, participating for the first time in these Meetings. They are constantly the focus of our attention and action in each of our schools and so it is completely justified to involve them into this dynamics. I would like to thank to all those participating in the Meeting: to the delegates of the schools, to the speakers, to the Director of our Network, Sr. Anne Marie Hill, to our Provincial Council, to our Provincial Superior, Sr. Teresa Nogueira and to our General Superior, Sr. Terezinha Cecchim.
