28/05/2016: Mexico

The Permanent Council of the CIAP and the Continental Commissions of Mission (CIM) and of Spirituality, Brothers and Laity (CIEHL) held the Joint Second Encounter of Synergy, in La Chona, Jalisco, Mexico from 16 – 20 May.

The joint meeting’s aims were firstly, to recognize the personal and collective path that has taken place in the American continent during the last seven years. Several people have been involved in building this communion in America, and in these two commissions and seven sub commissions of animation of the CIAP.
Secondly, participants also held the annual meeting of the Commissions and the permanent Council. During this meeting, they discussed projects that are currently being carried out and future ones, as well as the pending ones of the Strategic Plan of the Continent. 
They discussed different ideas and suggestions for improving current projects and the necessities to complete those actions with the horizon of the meeting of the Conference of Provincials of America after the General chapter.
Thirdly, they established a beautiful space to closely share, clarify and visualize, by means of the encounter of the Permanent Council with each Commission, some of the aspects on which to mutually support each other.
Fourthly, we had time to share possible joint synergies, suggestions and actions. The process of regionalization, proposed by the new models, was also discussed and ideas were given to integrate processes of the CIAP and the regions. These suggestions will be passed on to the corresponding organisms.
The fraternal and calm environment, the welcoming on behalf of the Province of México Occidental and the attention given to us by the brothers made us enjoy and work at an excellent pace.

President of CIAP
