Looking forward to the Formators Congress in Assisi

From 18 – 29 September 2019, the Formators Congress will take place in Assisi. This year the theme is «Personal Accompaniment in Formation”. Every six years, the formators from different Provinces and Vicariates are invited for a Congress.

Together with the sisters of the General Leadership, the participants will work on and discuss the various aspects of accompaniment processes. In this process, Father Ludger Ägidius Schulte OFMCap from Münster, Germany, will give impulse for three days on the theme and accompany the group. Mrs. Magda Emerich-Scholliers will moderate the whole Congress.

In addition to the content-oriented thematic work, we will walk in the footsteps of St. Francis and the St. Klara to deepen our Franciscan roots.

An important goal of the Congress is also to get to know each other and to be connected internationally and intercontinentally. This finds expression in a special way also in the common prayers and in the celebration of the liturgy.

God’s blessing and the joy of the diversity in our Congregation may characterize the Congress.
