Meeting of Community Facilitators

29/02/2008: Argentina

From 22nd to the 23rd of January, the first meeting took place in the provincial house of Cruz del Sur, Buenos Aires, of the community facilitators for this present year, attended by26 participants.
The meeting was facilitated by Graciela Senosian, who is attached to the Conference of Religious of Argentina. She spoke of the community facilitator as a mediator of interpersonal relationships. Her ideas were based on the work of Dolores Alexandre, Seekers of wells and roads (Buscadores de pozos y caminos.)

The topic addressed the expectations of the new generations of religious, with their limitations, crises and riches. There was a reflection on relationship problems in the community, working through different examples that helped to analyze situations of the pain and tension that can exist in community life.

On Saturday morning a period of time was dedicated to meditation, to the recognition that it is the Lord who heals our wounds and calls us to be compassionate, to sow life where death seems to prevail.

In the afternoon Brother Demetrio, the Provincial, addressed some words of encouragement to those present, and communicated some news relating to the progress of the Province, as well as some provincial projects that will be carried out in the course of the present year. He also announced the dates of the enlarged General Council and other regional meetings of Brothers and Lay people.

Brother Agustín Martínez, the provincial Administrator, presented a financial summary of the communities, giving useful indications on these economic topics, and commenting on pastoral and juridical aspects of the Constitutions with regard to the question of personal and community poverty.

Brother Alberto Aparicio presented a report on the pastoral activity of the province and the animation of Brothers and communities. He also referred to the vocational efforts that are being carried out.

Brother Germán Rozas brought the meeting to a close. The recitation of the Salve concluded these works, which are aimed at offering a better service to the Brothers in the communities.
