Commitment of the new Lavalla200> members

Saturday 12th September was a fitting day for the on-line ceremony in which the 8 new Lavalla200> members made their commitment and Br Ernesto Sánchez, Superior General, formally sent them on mission by presenting them with mission crosses.

About fifty people attended the Zoom session, including Brothers in Rome, Lavalla200> members past and present, family and friends of the new members, our regular translators.  We had participants from Mexico, Bolivia, Chile, Brazil, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Germany, Romania, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Philippines and Australia.

The ceremony itself focussed on the La Valla table, the reliquary at the Hermitage, the message of the Superior General, and the reading of the Pact prepared by the group.  The 5 different Lavalla200> groups had the chance to meet briefly and then a toast was proposed.  It was time to finish – 1am already in Australia and 10am in Mexico, a good time for brunch.
