Program for Accompanying Older Brothers

From November 6th to 29th, 19 brothers from 14 provinces meet at the General House to take part in the formation program for Accompanying Older Brothers. This is a formation program offered by the Institute through the Brothers Today Secretariat and the Ongoing Formation Team, made up of Brothers Ataíde José de Lima, Michael Sexton and Xavier Barceló Maset, who accompany the participants in this course.

The objectives of this program are:

  • Develop the skills of those who already accompany our older brothers, either in dedicated residences or as members of ‘ordinary’ communities.
  • Focus on the personal and pastoral care of these brothers.
  • Help prepare those who will exercise this service in the immediate future.
  • Promote a culture of care, explore dynamics of personal and community accompaniment adapted to this age, as well as promoting a spirituality appropriate to this stage of life.
