Generalate - evaluation process in Mondo Migliore. 10 – 12 July

Before we all go  on holiday  or undertake some language course to improve our English or our Italian, we went for three days to a very beautiful place near the Lake Albano, just opposite Castel Gandolfo. Away from our usual place of work we had time to review our experiences during the first 6 months of our time in Rome, to clarify our vision for the future and to get to know each other more deeply.  Claire Coldwell and Gill Chapman accompanied us through these days most competently and with great personal commitment. The Myers Briggs Type Indicator was a great help to us in understanding the particular strength of our team.

They visited all five apostolic communities: San Sebastian (school), Alza (children’s home), Encinas de Abajo (parish work),  Badalona (School) and Barcelona (school). They met all the sisters and had conversations with them. They also  met a group of lay people “Friends of Mary Ward” who together with others will prepare an international meeting  of those “men and women  who feel drawn to join us in the ‘open circle’ of companions of Mary Ward”. (GC 2011, 4)
