World Meeting of Families

Sr. Anna Quinterio CJ, our missionary in Cuba, participated with four Cuban families on the “World Meeting of Families” which took place from the 30th of May until the 3rd of June in Milan.
“The Family: Work and Celebration” was the topic of this meeting. Pope Benedict XVI said, it was a great experience for the church. And for the group from Cuba it was a great Pentecost. The next World Meeting of Families will take place in  Philadelphia (USA) 2015.
One of the couples belongs to the parish of Cartagena, where our sisters work. Frank and Maria Elena flew with their daughter to Italy.
After the meeting in Milan, the group went to Rome. They were guests of the community of the Congregatio Jesu in Via Nomentana. This journey to Italy was a great gift of God for them, because they could meet wonderful people and see beautiful cities.

But the schools in this situation carry on, and discern their educational responsibility in close collaboration with the Congregatio Jesu. Mary Ward’s educational aims are pursued with great commitment even where there is no sister of the Congregatio Jesus  to work in the spirit of the founder. So it was still more important for the school heads to reflect on the common roots and to encourage one another in sharing ideas and strengthening each other in the task.
