Pray with us, follow our livestreams and contribute to our blog

As you already know, Part 2 of our General Congregation (GC) begins tomorrow, Monday 22 August 2022, in Nemi, Italy.

We invite all the members of Mary Ward’s Institute – the sisters of the Congregatio Jesu (CJ) and the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary (IBVM) – as well as the worldwide Mary Ward family, to pray for the members of the GC assembled in Nemi.

YouTube live streams of the important liturgies

On different occasions during the General Congregation, we offer the possibility to join the GC members via YouTube livestreams. You can find all those livestreams on our YouTube channel:

Those who cannot follow the live prayers but still want to be united with us in prayer, can find the recordings of all livestreams shortly after their respective conclusions, following the same link:

We also warmly invite you to contribute to our GC blog.  Please send us your greetings, blessings and prayers for the GC and its members and we will publish them in the blog. You can send your entries in English, German or Spanish and the communications team will provide the translations.

Please send your contributions to Carla Bellone – and Esther Finis – They are also ready to answer your questions.
