Looking back at the last few days of the PRSC in Rome

The main aim of these days was to realize the emerging picture of our collective reality in our Congregatio Jesu.  Each sister was asked to draw a metaphor of how she sees the whole body of the Congregatio Jesu at this time in our history.  Sharing these pictures and trying to understand what they tell us was the main work of the last days. On Sunday evening Matthieu Daum, our facilitator, joined us to accompany our work until the end of our PRSC.

Second day of the PRSC in Rome

The focus of the second day was looking back at the changes each sister had experienced since she joined the CJ and what impact the adopting of the Constitutions in 2003 had on us as a congregation. The questions we reflected on were “What have been the positive impacts since [adopting the Constitutions]? What have been the struggles in living and embodying them?”
The main work was done in groups, followed by sharing in the plenary. The groups were small: only three or four members per group.  In order to communicate well we have five translators this time. This makes it possible for the group members from various continents to mix and share more freely. Expressing ideas through pictures and sharing them afterwards in the Plenum brought us to the conclusion of the session.

Opening of the Conference of CJ Provincial and Regional Superiors (PRSC) in Rome

On the evening of 19 April 2017, Jane, as General Superior, opened the PRSC and welcomed all the participants.
She explained that this PRSC is a follow up to the last PRSC in 2015, during which all concluded that there is need for change in the Congregatio Jesu worldwide for the better service of the mission.
The theme chosen expresses this: honouring the past, embracing the present, co-creating the future at the service of the mission. Matthieu Daum, an organizational consultant from France, will be our facilitator.  He will join us during the last days of our conference.  This time our work will mainly be process orientated, following the seven principles of Generative Listening and Generative Speaking. We do not know yet what the outcome will be. We trust in the work of the Holy Spirit. The main questions on the first day were: What works well in my Province/Region? What does not work well? What drains me in my role? Before we start our working sessions we will dance.
