Central Assembly 2015

Central Assembly 2015 - May 22

Friday, 22nd May

Sr. Izabela welcomed Sr. Helga Weidermann, Provincial from Germany. Sr. Maria Landsberger moderated the meeting; Sr. Bożena led us in prayer asking that the holy fire come!

Sr. Beata Matuszewska presented Secretary to the General Superior. Besides giving very concrete ways of communicating with the Generalate, she led us in an exercise on the “cords” of communication between entities and Generalate and among the entities.  Essential is the Word of God as a source of inspiration among us.

Sr. Helga Weidermann, Provincial of Germany, brought gifts for all the new members and a drawing of Marienborn for everyone.  She updated the Central Assembly members on the news of Marienborn.

In the afternoon, we prayed the Divine Mercy Chaplet together and then partied with special cheesecake from Poland.  Lots of gifts were exchanged among the Central Assembly Members.

Returning back to our duties we heard from Sr. Maria Landsberger about the missionary activity in Brazil.  A power point presentation accompanied her report.

 

LOOKING FORWARD – GENERAL CHAPTER 2016

“AWAKE, ENCOUNTER CHRIST AND BE WITNESS OF JOY TO THE WORLD”

The General Chapter will be held June 22 – July 16, 2016.  The provinces/regions and delegatures are asked to participate in spiritual preparation.  The General Administration will send out a nine-month reflection that will be divided into three topics:

  • Personal encounter with God;
  • United in the love and service;
  • Ignite the awareness of being sent.

* Our Way of Life *

 

"Our diverse talents and abilities, our differences in culture, nationality and age are assets for the richness of the community. Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"Christ, the Apostle of the Eternal Father, and his mission are central to our personal and community life, giving meaning and direction to our thinking, our spirituality, our prayer, action and suffering." (OWL, 19)

"As a community of disciples we are gathered around Jesus, the Apostle of the Eternal Father. Like the first disciples, we want to be with Jesus, be sent out by him and return to him to evaluate our service in the light of his presence." (OWL, 88)

"As Pallottines, it is our special charism to foster growth in faith and love among the laity, to awaken them to awareness of their apostolic call, and to cooperate with them in furthering the apostolic mission." (OWL, 21)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
