Inter-community meeting – Catalone

02/10/2012: Spain

Profiting from the feast of  8 September and the beginning of the new school year, 86 brothers from the communities of Catalonia gathered at Les Avellanes. It was a day full of sun, light and brotherly warmth.

Brother Provincial and some of his Council provided information first of all about what could be called « the logistics » at the beginning of a new year : the PVC, the Brothers/Laity Forum, the new community in Athens, the theme for the year, etc.

After having « revved the motor » with this information, they went into more depth with the programming of the provincial calendar: gatherings, networks, meetings, preparation for the 4thProvincial Chapter with the elections of capitulants, visit of the General Councillors, redistribution of tasks among the Councillors of Catalonia, sondage for the nomination of the Brother Provincial, financial questions, with merited applause for Brother Héribert Pujolàs on his 9 years of service as Provincial Econome. And as the saying goes « in two times three movements «  …, and there we knew almost everything we had to do ! Let us hope that Providence can find some free space to place its gifts and graces « ad hoc et ad momentum ».

We must say that the ambiance was very agreeable, full of fraternity and joy. The morning culminated with a solemn and pious climb up to the « Mare de Déu del Puig » (Virgin of the Hill) to celebrate the CENTENARY of the first monument (1912).
