Evaluation days for the CJ Generalate in Palazzola, from 6 to 8 June 2018

Since the beginning of our term of office, we, the Generalate team of the CJ, have spent a few days each year evaluating our experience of the previous year. Looking back at the last year our facilitator, Pauline Darby SHCJ, asked us to draw a road map indicating where we had found unusual treasures, roadblocks, where, for example, we crossed a bridge to new freedom, spent time in a place of beauty or where we met someone who helped us on our way.  Working with symbolic pictures was very helpful for taking a closer look at our experiences. On the last day, we were presented with pictures of various types of steps. Our task was to find out where each one of us sees herself looking ahead to the next few years.
The venue was excellent. It was not the first time that we have had our evaluation in Palazzola, the holiday house of the Venerable English College here in Rome, but this time summer made the difference. The weather was absolutely fine which meant that we could have our meals as well as some group sharing outside in the garden, with the panoramic view to Castel Gandolfo on the other side of the Lake Albano.     (Text and photos/eka)

Joint meeting of the two Generalate Teams – CJ (Congregatio Jesu) and IBVM (Loreto Sisters)

On Monday 4 June 2018, the two teams of CJ and IBVM met again, this time in Via Nomentana 250. We reflected on our shared experiences, such as the joint meeting of the Extended Leadership Groups on 27 April 2018, preparation for the Mary Ward Week booklet for 2019 and the UN NGO, together with possible cooperation in areas such as JPIC and Communications. We concluded our meeting with supper, together with all the sisters from both CJ and IBVM communities.  
“Don’t do alone, what you can do better together”. This motto accompanies us in all our sharing and planning as the two branches of Mary Ward’s Institute.
