Visitation of the Middle European Province (MEP)

On 7 January 2019 Elisabeth CJ and Prisca CJ left Rome to visit the Middle European Province. As the province is very big and includes four different countries, the visitation will be conducted in three separate parts. This is the first part. The second part will be at the end of March and beginning of April and the last one in June.
The term of office of the present Provincial Superior expires at the end of the year. 
Our Constitutions require us to make detailed inquiries in the province before the appointment of a new Provincial Superior. Therefore, Elisabeth and Prisca will this time visit all the communities between Bensheim and Bamberg and Hannover and Neuburg/Donau and have a conversation with each sister.

Joint meeting of the two Generalate Teams – CJ (Congregatio Jesu) and IBVM (Loreto Sisters)

On Friday 5 January 2019, the two Generalate teams of CJ and IBVM met again, this time in Via Nomentana 250. First they reflected on joint projects such as the booklet for Mary Ward Week 2019 and 2020, the unveiling of the Mary Ward Plaque in Liège and others. As they still follow the principle: “Don’t do alone what you what you can better do together“, they continued to talk about how they can proceed in cooperating in the areas of Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) and communication. The last topic of the joint meeting was given to Mary Ward. Liz Cotter IBVM, the vice postulator in the process of bringing forward the beatification of Mary Ward, reported on the work she had done during the last year and how ministries and other works around Mary Ward’s Family worldwide build up the story of the continual global reach of Mary Ward. It was a joy to hear that the devotion of Mary Ward is increasing around the world.  (text: Elisabeth CJ; photos: Františka CJ)
