20/02/2016: General House

After a week of different activities, the GC resumed the work of the plenary session, and devoted this week to the process of new models, the action plan of the Secretariat of Mission, the preparation of the extended General Councils and the proposals of FMSI. Two days were dedicated to an integrated work with the Secretariats and other sectors of the general administration in preparation for the next General Chapter. On the afternoon of the 17th, the GC attended a conference at the General House given by the monk Lluc Torcal, Procurator General of the Cistercians, on the experience of "ecological conversion" in the maintenance of the Monastery of Poblet, Catalonia.

Br Libardo Garzón, Econome General, participated in Nairobi, at the meeting of the finance committee of the MIC and MIUC. He also attended the first day of the seminar on the economic sustainability of the life and mission of the provinces of Africa and Asia.

From Feb. 15 - 22, the co-directors of the Secretariat of the Laity are meeting at the General House.

On Feb. 17, the Council of the Fratelli Project met at the general house. It includes Brothers Joe McKee, vicar general, and Chris Wills, director of Cmi, and two De La Salle Brothers.
