Asia formators meeting

30/01/2018: Philippines

An encounter for Asia’s formators was held at the Marist Asian Pacific Center in Marikina City, the Philippines, from Jan. 12 – 17 to prepare itineraries for all stages of formation in the region.

Sixteen brothers from several countries, who are working in formation houses of all levels, took part.

During the first few days, the participants had a chance to study the Message of the XXII General Chapter as well as superior general Brother Ernesto Sánchez’s explanation on what “a new La Valla” means for us.

The term “Global Family” made a strong impression in the discussion as the invitation for each one to be available for mission in all parts of the world. Br Ernesto used the image of a balanced table with four legs to describe the “New Beginning.” The meeting also reviewed the seven points of the colloquium on formation held in 2015.

After some days of reflecting on different messages and documents, participants started to produce the itineraries for formation.

Brother Paco García, formator of the postulancy in Davao, introduced the draft of the itineraries prepared by the formation commission.

There were different groups working on different stages of formation, from aspirancy to post-novitiate. They tried to establish complete and achievable itineraries for the formation programme in the whole region of Asia. The new draft of the itineraries was completed with the thorough reflection and serious thought of all the members of the group.

The participants will continue to work together to come up with a complete programme that will be implemented in the formation houses.
