2018-06-15 GENERAL HOUSE

Discussing the Institute?s animation and government

From June 11 – 15, superior general Brother Ernesto Sánchez and his council met at the general house with former superior general Brother Emili Turú and the council that animated the Institute from 2009 – 2017.

For five days, they shared topics related to the accompaniment of administrative units and regions, as well as other aspects of the Institute’s animation.

“It seemed to us that it was more convenient and productive to hold this meeting a few months after the general chapter, so that the new general council would have a better grasp of the issues, after having already spent some months in the service of animation and government,” affirmed Br Ernesto.

The purpose of the meeting was to share the experience of accompanying the Institute during the last eight years.

“Our sharing and reflecting together was part of the first stage of the planning that we will continue to carry out during the next fortnight,” concluded the superior general.
