International Communities for a New Beginning


31/03/2016: General House

The project International Communities for a New Beginning or La Valla 200>, as the organizing team has decided to call it, is already underway. In accordance with the timetable drawn up, during the month of December a first selection of candidates for the Project was undertaken. This was duly communicated to the persons concerned as well as to their Provincials.

The first formation session will take place near the famous monastery of Camaldoli (Toscana, Italy). The monastery has several houses in which the participants will live during the session, grouped in small international fraternities, in such a way that they will be able to begin to experience international community life.

The participants consist of a group of 13 Brothers: John Lavnge Nyuydine (West Africa); Isaac Alonso Arribas, Íñigo García Blanco and Miguel Ángel Sancha Montes (Ibérica); Ricardo Gómez Rincón (Norandina); Luis Vega Saguier (Paraguay); Álvaro Sepúlveda Romero (Santa María de los Andes); Onorino Rota (Mediterranea); Réal Sauvageau (Canada); Michael Callinan, Justin Golding and Lawrence McCane (Australia); Lawrence Lavallee (USA), and 8 lay men and women: Verónica Rubí (Cruz del Sur); Argelia Hernández Mendoza and Rodrigo Gris Castro (Mexico Occidental); Peggy Vivas Rodríguez (Norandina); Laura Miño Pérez and Mario Araya Olguín (Santa María de los Andes); Gabriel Bernardo da Silva and Bruno Socher (Brasil Centro Sul). Brothers Jeff Crowe and Ángel Medina will accompany them throughout the programme.

In addition, following proposals by several regions, the General Council has approved the location of the first communities: Tabatinga (Amazônia, Brazil America Sur); Agrigento (Sicily, Italy Europe); Sydney (Australia Oceania); New York (USA Arco Norte). The Council has also approved, in principle, other communities: among the Mapuche Indians (Chile/Argentina America Sur) and Kiribati (Oceania). At a later date, other decisions will be taken. These will include the communities for Africa, and the second community for Europe and Arco Norte.

Estas comunidades propuestas se unen a las comunidades internacionales existentes en el Distrito de Ásia (MDA).
