Meeting of Coordinators for Cono Sur and Brazil

09/06/2008: Argentina

On May 24 -25 a meeting of Chapter Coordinators took place at the Buenos Aires Provincial House of Cruz del Sur Province. Those who attended are overseeing the preparation process for the XXI General Chapter in the Provinces and Districts of Cono Sur and in the Provinces and Districts of Brazil. The meeting was directed by Brother Carlos Vélez Cacho of Central America Province and João Carlos do Prado of the Province of Brazil Centro-sur. Both Brothers are also members of the Preparatory Committee of the General Chapter. The Buenos Aires meeting was attended by the following Brothers: Francisco das Chagas Costa Ribeiro, Province of Brazil Centro Norte; Anacleto Peruzzo, Province of Brazil Centro-Sul; Rubén Seipel, Cruz del Sur Province; Ignacio Pruna, District of Paraguay; Valdícer Civa Fachi, Province of Rio Grande do Sul and Amazonia District; and Rafael Kongfook, Province of Santa María de Los Andes.

The meeting focused upon following topics: getting the preparations for the XXI General Chapter started in the Administrative Units of the Region; drawing people into the process; pointing out to the Coordinators various lines of action; drawing up suggestions related to the local, Province and Region levels for the first two preparatory steps.

Those in attendance felt very positive about the meeting, in regard to what they were expecting, as well as to the tone of the sessions. In addition, they greatly appreciated the welcome given them by the Brothers of the Cruz del Sur Provincial House. The Brothers in question showed great warmth to the guests and were always ready to help. In the months of June and July other meetings will take place involving the Coordinators of other Regions.

Let us ask Saint Marcellin and our Good Mother to enlighten us and to be present to us as we make our pilgrim way towards the XXI General Chapter. Thus may we be able to fashion within ourselves “new hearts for a new world”.
