Formation Meeting in Rome, 7-11 April 2015

logo FS

To mark the Year of Consecrated Life, the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life headed by H.E. João Braz Card. de Avis, invited formators from around the world to a meeting in Rome from 7th -11th April. The group numbered 1200 and fourteen Ursulines from eight provinces were among them. There were also two Ursuline sisters from India who joined our group.

The Programme as shown below was comprehensive. It was a rich experience, not only because of what we heard, but also what we experienced at discussion tables and during breaks and meal times. We were able to share freely with sisters and brothers from many and varied countries.

On Saturday morning we attended mass in St Peter’s celebrated by Cardinal de Aviz followed by an audience with Pope Francis.

The following day we Ursulines met with members of the General Council to process and share what we had heard, what challenged us, what were practical issues for us and how we as Ursulines need to follow up on this experience.

If anyone is interested in reading material from this meeting, it will appear on the web-site
