CRAL and IBVM Peru - Workshop on Ongoing Formation.

From 10th January until 6th February the Workshop on Ongoing Formation, organised by the CJ Regional Conference for Latin America (CRAL) and the IBVM Peru Region, took place in Argentina.  Sisters Anna (IBVM Ireland, in Peru),  Deepa (IBVM India, in Peru),  Lavinia (CJ  Rumania,  in Cuba), Celia and Liliana (CJ Argentina), Eni, Terezinha and Virginia (CJ Brazil), Eloísa, Patricia, Ruth, Margarita and Carmen (CJ Chile), took part in the Workshop. Sr. Estela CJ was the facilitator, along with others experienced in this kind of psychological-spiritual workshop, which included seven days of Spiritual Exercises, to deepen all that had been experienced. 
The sisters write:  “We arrived with various feelings, some with more misgivings than others,and everyone with many expectations.  But everyone came ready to enter into the process of personal and group learning. We realised that we had all come with one desire for greater unity, closeness and friendship between us.”  The workshop was an opportunity for each person to grow more deeply, according to her own nature, to revisit her personal and congregational history from a holistic viewpoint. They felt themselves  “strengthened and encouraged by one another in generative listening, each one contributing from her own resources as a consecrated woman.”  The workshop also offered an opportunity to “connect with the culture of Argentina, and to visit the places associated with our Papa Francisco. The pilgrimage to the shrine of Our Lady of Luján gave us a sense of the spirituality of Argentinian people, and with that, the visits to the communities at San Andrés de Giles and Plátanos helped us to get to know the origins of the Congregation  in Argentina”. 
This is another experience of collaboration in the extended Mary Ward Family in this part of the world, and certainly a new foundation for the restructuring process which the CJ provinces in Latin America are beginning to live through.
