Joint meeting of the two Generalate Teams – CJ (Congregatio Jesu) and IBVM (Loreto Sisters)

On Monday 4 June 2018, the two teams of CJ and IBVM met again, this time in Via Nomentana 250. We reflected on our shared experiences, such as the joint meeting of the Extended Leadership Groups on 27 April 2018, preparation for the Mary Ward Week booklet for 2019 and the UN NGO, together with possible cooperation in areas such as JPIC and Communications. We concluded our meeting with supper, together with all the sisters from both CJ and IBVM communities.  
“Don’t do alone, what you can do better together”. This motto accompanies us in all our sharing and planning as the two branches of Mary Ward’s Institute.

Mary Ward Retreat 2018 in Via Nomentana 250, Rome

When the invitation was sent out on “a first come, first served basis“ to members of the IBVM, the Congregatio Jesu and Mary Ward friends around the world to a Mary Ward retreat in Rome, the 30 places were booked up very quickly. The retreat began on Tuesday May 8 and has lasted one week. Each morning the participants meet at 9:00 for a talk given by Patricia Harriss CJ. Then there is time for private prayer. In the afternoon, the participants visit places connected with Mary Ward in Rome. Each evening, Magdalen O’Neill IBVM gives an input on historical documents related to Mary Ward’s life. Pilgrimages to Naples and Perugia, where Mary Ward opened schools in the early 17th century, have also been part of the programme.
The photos show Magdalen O’Neill IBVM, one of the organizers, checking her list to ensure that all the participants are present to set off on the pilgrimage to Mary Ward places round Rome in the afternoon, and some of the retreat participants. (text and photos/eka)
