Visitation of the Spanish Province

From Friday 16 until Wednesday 28 February Elena Gatica CJ and Elisabeth Kampe CJ visited the Spanish Province. We began with a Province Assembly. All the 25 sisters of the province were present and participated in the whole program of the day, which among other topics invited them to reflect about the future of this part of the CJ in Spain.  (photos 1-2) 
At the moment the main ministry of the sisters is education, as well as pastoral work in parishes, social volunteering and social work at the Mary Ward Home for children in Alza. The province still has full responsibility for the schools in San Sebastian and Badalona. (photo 3 school in Badalona; photo 4 CJ community in Barcelona) The total number of pupils, counting the two schools together, is about 1360. The school in Barcelona was recently taken over by the Narcis Jubany Foundation, which is under the Christian School of Catalonia, but the sisters can continue to work in the school as they have done up to now. 
During the visitation Elena and Elisabeth had the chance to visit the five communities and talk with all the sisters. It is amazing what the sisters of the CJ in Spain have accomplished in the 79 years since the province was founded.
