Walking, listening, learning and shaping the future of the congregation

During the council, which began the process towards the XXII General Chapter of 2024 and had as main point our new Constitutions, the congregational reality was analysed in all its cultural diversity and charismatic unit. From there, the future was raised with the question “What is God demanding us?”

It was also a space for listening, dialogue, and knowledge of the ecclesial reality of the hand of other companions on the journey as F. Antonio Carrón (OAR) who reflected to the “culture of good treatment in our life and mission”. In this way, a new reading was made of what good treatment means from the perspective of vulnerability, in the context of the Church and of healthy relationships in our lives.
