New commitment by Congregatio Jesu to the care of women in need in Innsbruck/Austria

In May 2017 a shelter for women who are victims of human trafficking, forced prostitution, exploitation and violence was established in the city of Innsbruck in Austria.  This centre belongs to the network of SOLWODI, (Solidarity for Women in Distress), which has already established counselling centres and shelters for women in need in many countries of Europe and all over the world.
Sister Andrea Bezáková, a member of the Slovakian Province of the Congregatio Jesu, has now been able to find two other social workers who will collaborate with her in the care of these women in need. This shelter can accommodate five women.

Generalate Evaluation Days

On 25 and 26 May 2017 the Generalate took time out for evaluation. Unlike other times, this time we stayed on in Via Nomentana to do this and it proved to be a good experience. Once again we had  Sr. Jane Bertelsen, the General Superior of the Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood (FMDM), as our facilitator. Her facilitation questions were very helpful to review the past and to look into the future. 
The first step was to gather our learnings as we looked back at the last 16 months. On the second day we focused on our future and tried to figure out what the main issues are which need to be addressed in the coming three and a half years of our time in office until General Congregation in 2020.
