Amerinidian Province

On 1 April 2021, Sr Silvia Ruiz CJ will begin her mission as the new Provincial of the new Amerindian Province, composed of the former Argentinian, Brazilian and Chilean Provinces. After a long journey of searching, prayer and discernment, the three Provinces agreed to unite to one new Amerindian Province. We thank Sr Margarita Riquelme of the former Chilean Province, Sr Maria Helena Gabai of the former Brazilian Province and Sr. Silvia Ruiz of the former Argentinian Province for all they have done for the sisters in their Provinces and for all the efforts to make steps towards union.  Sr. Silvia Ruiz will now continue to take responsibility for all the CJ sisters in South America. 
We, the sisters of the Generalate, wish Sr Silvia and her council an abundance of God’s blessings for the coming six years of her term of office. We will ask the Holy Spirit to be with her so that she can lead the province in love and discernment. We assure her of our prayer and support as she begins her new mission.

CJ and IBVM leadership teams online meeting

On Wednesday 27 January 2021, the General Leadership teams of the CJ and the IBVM met again. As the restrictions regarding meetings are still strict in Italy, this meeting had to be online. The agenda was long and it was not possible to finish in one afternoon. Therefore, we met again on Thursday 4 February 2021.
It was a joy for us to share about the positive experiences of the Animator-Ambassador collaborative work for CJ-IBVM Union in all the provinces and regions of both congregations. There are many initiatives to get to know each other better despite all the difficulties posed by Covid-19. WhatsApp groups were created, many online meetings took place, prayer partners were assigned and different ways were found to keep in touch.    A new Union website and the Union prayer will be launched soon. This will also help to further our process of coming together as one congregation.
The work of the Mary Ward JPIC office was another topic and there was great appreciation of all that Adina CJ and Pauline IBVM were able to do in collaboration with the JPIC animators in provinces and regions on various digital platforms. 
The difficulties with the representation of both congregations at the UN was also shared, now that both Cynthia and Janet are still in their own countries doing all the work online, surmounting the problems created by time zone differences.  They will be unable to return to New York before November at the earliest. Restrictions due to the pandemic are impacting all areas of our mission.
We usually conclude our joint meetings with supper but we need to wait until this will be possible again.
