Meeting of Masters and Accompagnateurs of Novices

The Secretariat of Brothers Today called together the masters and accompagnateurs of Novices for an online meeting on April 28. It was aimed mainly at getting acquainted with each other and sharing experiences in the work of formation.

In attendance were Novice Masters Fabien Bulaimo (Save, Rwanda), Emmanuel Mwanalirenji (Matola, Mozambique), Yao Kouassi Kan Sylvain (Kumasi, Ghana), Rubens José Falcheto (Cochabamba, Bolivia), Alejandro Herrera (Medellin, Colombia), Sean Sammon (Poughkeepsie, USA), Francisco García (Tudella, Sri Lanka) and Pepito Mahong (Tamontaka, Philippines).

Also present were brothers designated to accompany novices who are in communities or who cannot be with their respective novice masters for now. These accompagnateurs are Reál Sauvegeau and Rod Thompson (Tudella), Vigilio Bwalya (Bangladesh), Anselmo Kim (Saigon, Vietnam) and Claudino Falchetto (Patos de Minas, Brasil).

The other members of the novitiate team of Kumasi participated as well. They are Taylor Daniel Blanyon, Ezugwu Eugene Ikenna and Osuagwu Obinna.

Brothers João Carlos do Prado and Óscar Martín, Link Councilors for Brothers Today, were also around to accompany the formators and give words of welcome, thanksgiving and encouragement. Teofilo Minga served as the translator.

It was a historic moment for the Institute as it was the first time in recent memory that novice masters and brothers accompanying novices came together for wonderful experience of fraternity. Even though it took place under extraordinary circumstances, it nevertheless achieved its objectives.

We thank the Lord for the opportunity to deepen our sense of being one family under the protection of our Good Mother and the guidance of St. Marcellin.

Brothers Today Secretariat plans to host more of this meeting in the future, hoping that the other brothers who were not able to join for various reasons will be present.
