East Asia Province holds Annual Formators’ Forum to stay updated

24/02/2016: Philippines

East Asia held its Annual Formators’ Forum from Jan. 31 – Feb. 1 at the Marist School in Marikina, the Philippines, with the aim of updating each other on the current situation in the province.

“The aims of the Forum were to bridge gaps, to reflect and discuss issues that surfaced in the updates, identify future formators who can be prepared for the work and to discuss ongoing formation of formators to help them in their work,” said Br Anselmo Kim, one of the participants. 

He told the general house press office on Feb. 18, that another aim was “to widen the tent” regarding formation within the region of Asia.

Participants included Brothers Albert Muñoz of the vocations ministry, Anselmo of the vocation ministry and the Formation and Vocations Commission, and East Asia Provincial Robert Teoh.

Brothers Lindley Sionosa (a novitiate master), Rustico Lumbo (dean of MAPAC), Teodulo Fernandez of Young Brothers, Romulo Porras of the vocation ministry, Nicholas Fernando (a novitiate master and a representative from the South Asia Province) also attended.

They discussed updates from each level of formation of the Philippines, Korea, Japan and the Province of South Asia – Sri Lanka, Pakistan and India.

The Brothers also discussed proposed vocation and formation programmes of the Philippines, the identification and preparation of formators, Asia’s formation commission and concerns on formation in the Marist region of Asia.
