After two (2) days of getting settled in the Retreat House and having had some time to visit the school, after a lovely Eucharist of Welcome presided over by the Apostolic Nuncio Monseñor Thevenin and the students of the Centro Maya Asuncion, San Luis, Peten who travelled 8 hours to color our celebration with lively, traditional music – 2 Superior Generals (RA-ANDP), 5 General Councilors (4, RA and 1, ANDP), 16 RA Provincials, 2 Regional Superiors (1, RA and 1, ANDP) gathered at the Retreat House of the Assumption Sisters in Guatemala City for the CGP (Plenary General Council) of 2015 on Friday, the 2nd of October 2015.
With the Opening Remarks of Sr. Martine, the CGP Community set to motion this year’s theme – “On our way to the othere shore, we find our joy in the fidelity of Christ”. The first week immediately got the community in meaningful conversations – with each Provincial/Regional sharing where she felt her Province/Region is at this time while the General Council also shared where they felt the Congregation is since the last CGP in February 2014. It is a week of intense listening and story-telling about things, events and experiences that matter to us as Religious of the Assumption today.
The warm welcome and solicitous hospitality that Sr. Odessa and the Provincialate Community of “Zone 10” provides the CGP has kept everyone feeling at home.
Sr. MarJo, r.a.
