Formation courses now taking place in Italy and in Spain

28/09/2016: General House

Two formation courses are currently taking place simultaneously, one in Spain and in Italy (Thresholds), as well as a second one for third age brothers in Italy (Amanecer).

Thresholds is being held in Manziana, Italy, for English speaking brothers and in El Escorial, Spain, for Spanish and Portuguese speaking brothers.

The coordinators in Manziana are Brothers Dennis Cooper and Teófilo Minga and for the course in El Escorial, they are Brothers Antonio Peralta and Joarês Pinheiro de Sousa.

In Manziana, twelve Brothers between the ages of 61 and 70 from Mozambique, Malawi, Philippines, Malaysia, Kenya, Australia, and New Zealand are taking part in course, which began on Aug. 11 and will finish on Oct. 12.

In El Escorial, the course also began on Aug. 11 and will end on Oct. 12. There are 16 participants, from the District of Asia and of the Provinces: Brasil Centro-Norte, Santa María de los Andes, Norandina, América Central, México Occidental, Mediterránea and Ibérica.

The other formation programme titled Amanecer is for third age Brothers, over the age of 70, taking place at the general house in Rome from Sept. 1 – Oct. 31, under the guidance of its two directors – Brothers Landelino Guerrero and Javier Ocaranza.

It hopes to give new strength to the 20 Brothers who travelled from Honduras, Haiti, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela, Brazil, Mozambique and Spain to take part. The same programme for English speaking Brothers will be held in Manziana, Italy, from Oct. 20 – Dec. 16.

Both programmes include a week’s trip to L’Hermitage in France to visit historic places that are significant to the Institute.
