Consultative Meeting 2010 — Turin, Italy
Every year, the FCJ Society Provincials gather with
General Leadership for a Consultative Meeting.
This year's meeting took place in Turin, Italy from July 8th – July 17th.
The theme chosen for the meeting was: New Wine...New Wineskins.
Once again, the time together proved to be a fruitful and helpful opportunity to share and plan for the future life and mission of the Society. All present were most grateful for the wonderful welcome and gracious hospitality offered to us by the FCJ sisters in Turin.
Being in a place which had such a strong connection with our founder Marie Madeleine was a particular blessing of this meeting as we reflected on her vision and how to live that vision now and in the future. Sr. Brenda Dolphin rsm facilitated the meeting gently and wisely and on July 12th Sr. Eugenia Bonetti cm gave a very complete and dynamic presentation on the many aspects of human trafficking. FCJs from Livorno, Rome and Turin joined us for a Sunday lunch and our Companions in Mission joined us one evening for a pizza supper.
